A GANG left a man with facial injuries in a late night city centre attack.

Police are appealing for witnesses after three men and a woman approached the 56-year-old man on The Avenue last night and assaulted him without warning.

The incident happened on the pavement between Brighton Road and the Vauxhall dealership.

The victim required medical attention after he was left with a split lip and loose teeth.

Officers say the gang were in their early 20s.
