Police later told The Lincolnite that the man’s injuries were not believed to be life-threatening, although the nature of them still remains a mystery.

A spokesperson from Lincolnshire Police said on Thursday: “No-one has been arrested or charged in connection to this incident.

“We have now removed the scene guard from the address and our enquiries are ongoing. Anyone with information should call 101, quoting incident 61 of February 19.”
