A MAN suffered life-changing injuries after being attacked by an armed gang at a flat in Leamington.

Police are treating the attack, which happened in Baxter Court shortly before 8pm on bank holiday Monday, as attempted murder.

Police found a 37-year-old man with serious injuries to his head, torso, arms and leg.

His injuries are described as life changing and he is currently in a stable condition in hospital.
