Officers were called to Southampton Road at about 7.20pm this evening (Saturday, October 15), where they found a man in his 30s with a serious head injury. He was treated at the scene before being taken to hospital.
A police cordon has been set up in Southampton Road and is expected to remain in place overnight and into tomorrow as part of the investigation into this serious incident.

“I am now appealing to anyone who has any information about the incident or anyone who may have been in the area at the time, to please contact us as a matter of urgency.
"Any little detail may assist the investigation team and we would rather be given well-meaning information that comes to nothing, than it not be given it at all.”
