A man is in hospital with multiple skull fractures following a report of an assault in Kimberley.

The man was taken to hospital for treatment and will require surgery.

Detectives have now launched an investigation into the circumstances and are appealing to anyone who may have seen the incident to come forward.

Detective Sergeant David Prest, of Nottinghamshire Police, said: “This is a serious incident that’s left a man hospitalised.

“Any information you have, no matter how insignificant you think it may be, could help us understand what happened.”

If you have any information or witnessed the incident, please contact Nottinghamshire Police on 101 quoting incident number 20 of 13 January 2021.
