A man in Alderney has been arrested on suspicion of attempted murder, following what's been described by police in the island as a "domestic incident".
Officers were called to the incident in the early hours of this morning, and a 55-year-old woman has been transferred to Guernsey for medical treatment, after initially being treated at Alderney's Le Mignot Hospital.
WATCH: Chief Inspector Andrew Hockey gave a statement to the media this afternoon.
She is said to be in a stable condition.
Guernsey Police have said the 56-year-old man poses no wider risk to the public.
"We have deployed additional police resources to Alderney in order to carry out our investigation and the public will see a higher police presence than usual," explained Chief Inspector Andrew Hockey.
"This is purely to allow us to do our necessary work and we want to reassure the public we are not looking for any further suspects, nor is there any wider risk to the community."
