Police have released a CCTV image of a man they would like to speak to following an assault in Newmarket last month.

The incident took place at around 3.20am on Sunday, December 21 in the High Street, outside a charity shop near to the clock tower.

A man in his 30s was approached by a group of three men and struck to the face, causing his lip to cut and swell.

The same three men were also involved in an altercation with two other men prior to this incident. It is this altercation which is shown in the CCTV image.

Police would like to speak to the man who is circled in the CCTV about these incidents. He is described as wearing a dark coat with a fur-lined hood.

They would also like to hear from the two men accompanying this man and also the two other men pictured from behind, who may be witnesses to either incident.

Anyone who believes they know the man circled in the CCTV image, or who has any information about this incident, is asked to contact PC James McAuley of the Night Time Economy Team on 101 quoting reference NE/14/2189.
