An unprovoked attack in Liskeard has left a man with a fractured skull.

Detectives tell us the 49 year old fell to the floor after being head-butted - and was then kicked in the head.

Police say it happened after a fight at a pub - and they want to hear from anyone who saw something in the early hours of Sunday.

A local man in his twenties has been arrested and bailed on suspicion of GBH.

A spokesperson for Devon and Cornwall Police said: "The 49-year-old Liskeard man was assaulted during a fight involving three other men in the Cornish Ivy pub around 12.30am on Sunday 6 July.
 
"The altercation then continued five minutes later near to the Fountain Hotel when the victim was approached by two of the offenders.
 
"He was head-butted by one man and fell to the floor where he was kicked in the head.
 
"The victim was taken to hospital where he is recovering from a fractured skull.
 
"A 22-year-old man from Liskeard has been arrested on suspicion of assault causing grievous bodily harm. He has been bailed until 22 September.
 
"Police are appealing for information and are keen to speak to anyone who witnessed the fight in the pub and the subsequent assault in the street.
 
"Please contact police on 101, or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111, quoting crime reference CR/087437/14."
