A man suffered several broken bones after being seriously assaulted in Halstead at the end of last year, with police now calling for witnesses to the incident to come forward.

It occurred at The Dorrington Hotel and Bar in Trinity Street on Thursday, December 27, some time between 9.30pm and 10pm, when a 23-year-old man was attacked by another man in the men’s toilets.

The victim was subsequently transported to hospital, having sustained broken vertebrae and broken ribs, as well as a serious injury to his lip, which will require surgery.

An investigation into the assault has been launched and enquiries are ongoing.

Officers would like to speak to anybody who was at the venue on the night of December 27, who may have seen what happened or who noticed any suspicious activity around the times stated.

Anybody who has information has been asked to contact DC Chris Rhodes at Braintree CID on 101, quoting the incident reference number 42/190070/18, or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.
