Detectives are appealing for information after a cyclist was attacked by a number of people in North Lynn.

The man, in his 30s, had been cycling from Salters Road towards Newlands Avenue last Tuesday at about 1am.

As he cycled across wasteland, he was approached by a group of people who then assaulted him.

The victim suffered cuts and a fractured eye socket which required hospital treatment.

Officers say they are keen to hear from anyone who may have witnessed the incident or has information concerning the people responsible.

Anyone with information should contact Detective Constable Chris Parnham at King’s Lynn CID on 101.
