We are appealing for witnesses following a serious assault in Bridgwater earlier this week.

On Wednesday 20 March between 10.30-11pm, a man in his 30s was assaulted by an unknown man who was with a woman in West Street, Bridgwater.

The suspect – described as a white man, between 25-30 years old, around 5ft 8ins tall, of slim build, with short, brown hair and wearing a jumper and jeans – punched, kicked and beat the victim.
