Officers are appealing for witnesses to come forward after a man was found on the floor and suffering a head wound in Margate.

On Saturday 6 August, patrols were called to a disturbance in Market Street at around 8.30pm. On arrival a man in his 30s was found with the injury. He was taken to hospital for treatment but has since been discharged.

Enquiries were carried out at the scene to establish the circumstances of the incident. Several people have been spoken to but there were reportedly hundreds of people in the area that evening and officers believe others may have seen something that could be helpful to their investigation.

Anyone with information or footage, either phone, CCTV or dashcam, should call the Kent Police appeal line on 01843 222289 quoting reference 46/152927/22.
