Avon and Somerset Constabulary have issued an appeal for information after a man was assaulted in Burnham-on-Sea on Sunday evening.

The incident took place outside the S&A Linens shop, in High Street.

A police spokesman said: “We were called to reports of an assault outside a second-hand shop in the High Street, in Burnham, at about 8.15pm on Sunday.

“The male victim was assaulted and suffered a cut on his head which required stitches.

“Our investigation into the incident is ongoing.”
