A CCTV image of a man police want to question over an attack on a fellow reveller in Burton town centre have been released.

Staffordshire Police released the picture to the Mail in a bid to locate the person featured in relation to an incident which saw a 20-year-old left with serious facial injuries inside Fever, in High Street.

A major investigation was launched in the aftermath, and now police chiefs are hoping the image they have distributed will help to ‘jog the memory’ of revellers.

A spokesman for Staffordshire Police said: “Officers from East Staffordshire local policing team have issued a CCTV image of a man they want to speak to in connection with an assault inside a Burton bar.

“The incident happened at approximately 2.20am on Friday, March 28, when the victim was on the second floor of the Fever bar in High Street.

“He was approached by an unknown offender and punched in the face, causing him to fall to the floor.

“The man captured on CCTV is described as being in his 40s, of medium build and with short brown hair.

“He was wearing a long-sleeved blue and grey top and black trousers at the time of the incident.

“The victim, a 20-year-old man from Burton, sustained facial injuries following the attack.”

This detailed information has only just been released to the Mail by detectives from Staffordshire Police.

Anyone with information on the incident, or who recognises the man captured on CCTV, is asked to call Staffordshire Police on 101, quoting incident number 302 of March 28.

Alternatively, people can call Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555111.
