A man was left with a badly broken jaw after being attacked following a night out.

The 23-year-old victim was walking home with his girlfriend, 21, in Sheerness High Street at around 3.30am today when they were approached by a group of about 10 people near the clock tower.

The man was reportedly assaulted and suffered suspected multiple fractures of the jaw. He is now being treated for his injuries in a West Sussex hospital.

DS Beverley Morrison of Kent Police said: "This was a cowardly and unprovoked attack on a man by a group of people that has left the victim with serious injuries and he remains in hospital.

"I am appealing for anyone who might have witnessed the assault or who might have seen a group of people walking together in the High Street between 3am and 3.45am to come forward and help us with our inquiries."
