A 19-year-old man has been taken to hospital after an assault in a multi-storey car park in Newmarket. 

Officers were called to the car park of the Guineas Shopping Centre in Fred Archer Way at about 9pm last night, Monday, January 31, to reports of an assault. 

A spokesman for Suffolk police said: "A 19-year-old male was kicked and punched by around five males.

"The victim was taken to Addenbrooke's Hospital for treatment and he has since been discharged with no serious injuries."

A police cordon was put in place while investigations were being carried out by officers but that has since been removed. 

An eyewitness said she saw a large police presence in the area and a section of the car park cordoned off by officers.
