Three men were assaulted in Lion Walk, Colchester town centre, on Saturday, February 23 at around 2.30am.

All three sustained injuries during the attack, with a 20-year-old sustaining a broken nose, another 20-year-old suffering a chipped tooth and a 21-year-old man was left with a lump to his forehead.

The area is known as a popular destination for shoppers during the day, but is regularly frequented by night-time revellers making their way between the town centre’s pubs and bars.
