We are appealing for witnesses after a 19-year-old man was assaulted in Bridgwater.

The incident happened in Cranleigh Gardens at around 11pm on Saturday 21 May. The man was stabbed in the local park and officers believe there were five offenders.

The man was taken to hospital, where he was later discharged.
