Must be more to it than just a head injury - they wouldn't use a tent and collect forensic evidence it it was simply a fight and someone hit their head, otherwise there would be tents up in every city & town around the UK on a Friday/Saturday night .......... perhaps they are pursuing an attempted murder charge as looks like weapons may have been involved

I must say I wondered what all the palarva was about. Wombwell isn't exactly green belt leafy suburbia; there's a violent incident every day of the week, so what's different this time?
