A man, 28, was critically hurt and three others suffered none life-threatening injuries.

A Tranmere man, aged 31, has been held on suspicion of conspiracy to murder.

A 30-year-old man, who was previously arrested on suspicion of murder and attempted murder, and a 19-year-old woman, who was held on suspicion of conspiracy to murder, remain in police custody.

Officers have been granted more time to question the pair.
