The 32 year-old man from Ely who was arrested earlier on suspicion of attempted murder remains in custody.

Officers were called to Harris Avenue, Rumney, at 3.25pm on Monday, April 13 to reports of a serious assault which resulted in the victim undergoing surgery for life-changing injuries, caused by what are described as a machete and shot gun.

He remains at the University Hospital of Wales, Cardiff, in a stable condition.

Detectives investigating the incident have secured four scenes across the Grangetown area of Cardiff.
