The 34-year-old from Church Stretton was arrested on Saturday afternoon and has since been bailed pending further enquiries, West Mercia Police said.

The arrest comes after a man was taken to hospital following a suspected stabbing outside Shrewsbury's Fever & Boutique nightclub in Hills Lane, in the early hours of Saturday morning.

Officers said that it is believed the man had been attacked by another man "with what’s thought to have been a knife" at 3.10am on Saturday, but said the 27-year old victim's injuries "are not deemed to be life-threatening".

A statement from the force said they believed the incident had followed an earlier altercation in the club.
