Detectives have made two further arrests in connection with a street attack which left a football fan with life-threatening head injuries.

West Midlands Police said two men aged 18 from Wolverhampton had been arrested earlier this week by officers investigating the assault on Watford fan Nic Cruwys.

Both men have now been released on bail pending further inquiries into the attack, which took place in Wolverhampton on March 7.

A total of nine other suspects, aged between 14 and 21, have previously been questioned and bailed as part of the inquiry.

Mr Cruwys, a 44-year-old father-of-two from Hemel Hempstead, was initially placed in an induced coma after the attack.

An online appeal set up to help Mr Cruwys, who was moved to a specialist care ward in late March, has so far raised more than £37,000.
