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.
