A 22-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of attempted murder over an assault on the Limestone Road in north Belfast on Friday night.

A 25-year-old man remains in a serious condition in hospital following the attack that is believed to have involved a number of people.

A woman arrested at the weekend has since been released on police bail, as has a man arrested on Sunday.

Police have previously said they do not believe the attack was sectarian.
