A man remains in a critical condition following an incident at the Clagh Vane estate, in Ballasalla, on Sunday.

Alexander Charles Messenger was transferred to a hospital in the UK.

Police found Mr Messenger lying in the street with serious head and facial injuries, and earlier this week his injuries were described as ‘life-threatening’.

A 35-year-old Ballasalla man has appeared in court in connection with the incident.

David Anthony Mitchell, of Quine’s Close, is charged with unlawful and malicious wounding with intent to cause grievous bodily harm, affray and possessing an offensive weapon.

He was remanded in custody to appear before the Deputy High Bailiff on Tuesday.
