A Crime Scene Investigation van was stationed in the supermarket car park, close to the bus stop, before being seen leaving at around 10.30am.

Police said the man remained in hospital this morning but his injuries were not believed to be life-threatening.

One member of the public said he had seen forensic officers and numbered markers on the floor near the Manor Top tram stop when he passed earlier this morning.
