A teenager who was hit with a hammer in Wolverhampton city centre has most likely suffered life-changing injuries.

The police forensic tent and cordon in Wulfrun Square have now been removed

The 16-year-old boy was in a critical condition after the attack on Monday but his condition has now stabilised and his injuries will most likely be life-changing, police said.

And officers are still searching for the attacker who hit the boy over the head with the weapon outside the Wulfrun Shopping Centre at around 4.30pm.

A police cordon and tent were still in place in Wulfrun Square outside Co-Operative Travel and opposite Primark on Tuesday.

Nearby shoppers and security guards helped the victim before medics, including the air ambulance from Cosford, arrived on the scene.

Anyone with information is urged to call West Midlands Police on 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111, quoting log number 1734 of 15/04.
