A Kelvedon man left with serious facial injuries at a music festival may have stepped in to help a girl before being attacked, his brother has said.

Jimmy Leggett, 21, suffered a fractured cheekbone and eye socket at the Creamfields festival on Sunday.

Mr Leggett was taken to hospital and is now recovering at the home.

His twin brother, Max, said: “Only thing he said to me was a girl was getting bullied by a lot of other boys and he stepped in.

“That could be when it kicked off or it could be nothing to do with it. He just can’t remember.

“We don’t really know what’s happened so we are just trying to reach out to someone who saw what happened. It looks to me like a glass bottle has been used.

“That’s for life what he’s got. His face will never be the same.”
