CCTV released after Morecambe pub assault

John Freeman
A CCTV image of a man police would like to speak to in connection with an assault at Morecambe's Imperial pub last month has just been released.

Police were called to the pub on Regent Road after a fight broke out at around 11.15pm on Tuesday 30th August.

It is believed that the fight, involving a group of men and women, began inside the pub but then spilled out on to the street outside.

On arrival, police found a 49-year-old man with serious head injuries and he was taken to Royal Lancaster Infirmary. He has since been discharged, but is continuing to receive hospital treatment.

Detectives are now making a renewed appeal for anyone who may have been in the area at the time to contact them.

“We're keen to trace the bald headed man in the light coloured shirt captured on CCTV," asks DC Clare Wilson from Lancaster CID, "and I would urge anybody who knows him to come forward.

“This was a nasty assault that resulted in some serious injuries and I would appeal to anyone who has any information that could help with our investigation to come forward and contact us.”

• Anyone with any information can contact police on 01524 63333 or via Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
