A man was allegedly attacked with a dumbbell bar on Saturday in Welwyn Garden City.

At about 10.50pm, two men reportedly got into an altercation at a property in Howardsgate - which saw one of the men allegedly use a dumbbell bar to hit the other.

Following the incident, a 34-year-old man of no fixed address and a 36-year-old man from Welwyn Garden City were arrested on suspicion of grevious bodily harm - bailed until August 9.
