A 45-year-old local man is now in the care of the Lincoln County Hospital, after he was attacked and beaten by four other men on the night of Saturday, July 3.

At about 11.10pm on July 3, four men were reported to have attacked and beaten a local man on Cannon Street in Lincoln (pictured).

His injuries consist of a broken jaw, a broken nose, a fractured eye socket, a broken finger, and general cuts and bruises. He remains in a stable condition at the Lincoln County Hospital, and his injuries are not judged to be life-threatening.

Four men are believed to have been involved, and Lincolnshire Police has only brief descriptions of the offenders.
