Police have released a CCTV image of a man they want to speak after an assault in a Blackburn pub that left a man with serious facial injuries.

The public is being asked to pay particular attention to the tattoos on the man's right inner forearm and back of his hand.

The incident is said to have happened at the Fernhurst Pub, on Bolton Road, at about 9.20pm on August 12.

During the incident, a 34-year-old man was attacked by two men and suffered multiple fractures to his face.

Earlier this month, Lancashire Constabulary had received a number of calls naming one particular person following an earlier appeal.

Detectives have previously arrested a 23-year-old man from Blackburn on suspicion of wounding. He has since been released under investigation while enquiries continue.

Detective Sergeant, Alex Rawsthorn, of Blackburn CID, said: “This incident left a man with some significant injuries and our enquiries are ongoing to identify those responsible for the attack.

“I would like to thank the public for their response to our previous appeal and I would again encourage them to come forward if they recognise the individual in the CCTV image.”
