Detectives are appealing for information following an assault in Liverpool City Centre in the early hours of this morning, Saturday, 15 August.
Just after 1am, emergency services were called to Bold Street reports that a man was unconscious on the floor on Bold Street near to Central Station. Officers raced to the scene and gave first aid until paramedics attended. The 27-year-old man, who comes from Northern Ireland, was taken to hospital where he is being treated for serious head injuries and his condition is currently described as critical but stable.
It is believed that the victim was walking down Bold Street towards Hanover Street with three friends when they were assaulted.

"We appeal to anyone who has information to come forward as soon as possible. If you're a driver who was in the area of Hanover Street at the time of the incident at around 1am- let us know if you have dashcam footage which could help further our investigation."
