Our thanks to Tim for alerting us to a piece published 16 hours ago on the Notts Police Facebook page. It reads:

A 61-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of grievous bodily harm with intent.
A 44-year-old man and a 47-year-old woman were arrested on suspicion of conspiracy to commit grievous bodily harm.
They have all been released pending further investigation.
Our enquiries are ongoing.
