POLICE are appealing for witnesses after a serious assault in Filton on the night of Massive Attack concert.

The 51-year-old victim had just left The Plough pub and was walking past the junction with the Airbus entrance on Gloucester Road North at about 12.15am on Sunday, March 3, when he was assaulted.

He remains in hospital in a serious but stable condition.

Investigating officer DC John Shanahan said: “The area around Gloucester Road North would have been busy that evening, especially with the Massive Attack concert being held at the nearby Steel Yard.

“We’d like to speak to people if they saw or heard anything suspicious around the time the incident happened.

“We’d also like to appeal for Dash Cam footage from anyone driving up or down Gloucester Road North around the same time.”

Anyone who can help with the inquiry is asked to call the police on 101 with the reference number 5219047397.
