Detectives are hunting for thugs who carried out a brutal early-morning attack in Romford town centre.
These CCTV images show people police want to speak to in connection with the July 12 assault in South Street near the World’s Inn pub, that left a 22-year-old man hospitalised after being pushed over, kicked and punched.
Officers, who were called at 3.45am, found the victim slumped on the floor surrounded by passers-by.
He had spent the evening drinking with friends at a local nightclub, and towards the end of the night had an argument with a group of men.
He felt intimidated by the group and told security, who made the group leave.
