Boy stable after seaside town attack
A 15-year-old boy who suffered head injuries after being attacked in a seaside town is now in a stable condition, police said.
Officers were called to Milfoil Drive in Eastbourne, East Sussex, at 4.14am on Saturday following reports of a fight.
The local boy, who suffered a fractured skull, was taken to hospital in Eastbourne before being transferred to King's College Hospital in London in a critical condition.
His condition later improved and is no longer believed to be life-threatening, a spokesman for Sussex Police said.
Christopher O'Connor, 25, of The Crescent, Eastbourne, and Anthony Abnett, 21, of Sydney Road, Eastbourne, were arrested later that morning and charged with grievous bodily harm.
They appeared at Eastbourne Magistrates' Court yesterday afternoon and were remanded in custody to appear at Lewes Crown Court on October 15, the spokesman added.
Police are appealing for witnesses to call them on 0845 60 70 999 quoting Operation Lorna.
