Police are trying to piece together what happened to a Bury St Edmunds man who was discovered at his home with serious injuries.

Suffolk Constabulary was contacted twice on Tuesday to reports of concern for a man who had been seen with injuries.

Officers made two searches of the area and called twice at the address in the Vinefields where he was thought to live, but there was no answer.

There were reports the man, believed to be in his late 30s to 40s, had been spotted in Eastgate Street with blood on his face and a black eye and also appeared to be intoxicated, and he was also seen bleeding in a pub in the town.

After concerns were raised by friends yesterday morning police went to the address - which is a Havebury Housing Partnership property - and this time found him inside.

He was in and out of consciousness and appeared to have sustained head injuries and an injury to his torso.

He was taken to West Suffolk Hospital by land ambulance and yesterday his injuries were not thought to be life threatening.
