POLICE are appealing for information on an alleged assault after a man was found with a head injury in Lyme Regis.

The man, aged in his 40s and of no fixed abode, was taken to Lyme Bay Medical Practice in Silver Street on Thursday, February 15th. He was later taken to Dorset County Hospital for treatment but his injuries are not thought to be life-changing or life-threatening.

Detective Sergeant Rhys Griffiths, of Weymouth CID, said: “We are still trying to establish exactly how the man came to sustain the injury and I am appealing for anyone with information to contact police.

“I would be keen to hear from anyone who saw a man matching the description given around the area of the Royal Standard pub on Wednesday evening or in the area of the Lyme Bay Medical Practice yesterday morning.”
