Detectives are now investigating two incidents in Enniskillen during the early hours of today (Wednesday, 24th February).

Just before 3.10am, police received a report of concern for the safety of an injured male who was seen walking in the vicinity of Cornagrade Road in the town.

A PSNI statement says that officers responded to the report, checking the area, but they were unable to locate the male.

But at 4am, police received a report from the NIAS in relation to a male teenager who had sustained a serious head injury.

The teen, aged 19 years old, was taken to hospital where he remains this afternoon in a critical condition.
