A man is in a serious condition in hospital following an assault in Buxton.

At around 10.30pm last night (Saturday, September 12), paramedics and police were called to reports of a man unconscious in the street outside the London Road Inn.

The 53-year-old had suffered a serious head injury and remains in a critical condition at hospital in Salford.

Police believe he may have been involved in an argument with a group of men and are appealing for witnesses to come forward.

Two Buxton men, aged 41 and 49, have been arrested on suspicion of assault.

They remain in custody and will be questioned.

Anyone with information should call police on 101, quoting incident number 825 of September 12, or Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
