A man has suffered a fractured cheekbone in an assault at a popular restaurant, say police.

The incident happened at around 2am on 1 January at Guys Thatched Hamlet on St Michael's Road in Bilsborrow, when a member of staff was punched to the face while attempting to diffuse an altercation.

The member of staff, a 21-year-old man, suffered a fractured cheekbone during the incident.

DC Richard Brierley, of Preston Police, said: "The member of staff has been left with a painful injury whilst simply trying to calm down an argument which had broken out between customers.”

On Wednesday night, police said a man had come forward to ‘help with inquiries’ after a CCTV appeal.
