The victim told police he went to The Goose pub and - while just outside the doors - was hit in the head with a bottle and knocked to the floor unconscious.

He was taken to hospital, where he was treated for his injuries.

A 22-year-old man has been arrested in connection with the incident, but officers would like to speak to anyone other witnesses.

Police released details today about the attack at about 12.45am on Friday, June 20.

Detective Jessica Hamer said: "This was an unprovoked attack. CCTV shows on the night in question there were a vast amount of people around who must have seen what happened and/or know who carried out the assault."

Witnesses who have not yet spoken to police are urged to phone police on 101, quoting reference ZY/20108/14.
