A MAN suffered a serious head injury after a fight in a Hampshire town centre.

The 35-year-old claimed he was punched as he was walking away from a kebab shop in Market Street, Eastleigh, heading towards the Swan Centre.

He was taken to hospital after suffering a “serious wound” to the head.

Police have arrested a 24-year-old man on suspicion of causing grievous bodily harm.

He has been told to report back to Southampton Central Police Station in January.

Officers want anyone who witnessed an argument in the area between midnight and 1am on Saturday to come forward. Call Eastleigh police on 101.

Unless someone is thought to be an exceptional risk to the community or at risk of fleeing the country, then bail is the appropriate action for the police to take. It's only in the most serious of cases (murder, manslaughter, rape, etc) that remand is considered as an option. Otherwise jails would be full of people who had not committed a serious offence.

Having said that I hope the person who was attacked is recovering and I wish all a Happy Xmas.
