POLICE have launched a witness appeal after a fight left a man unconscious in Southampton.

Officers were called to the incident outside Leisure World between 2.50am and 2.55am on Sunday May 12.

The incident involved two men, one of whom was knocked unconscious, suffering serious but not life-threatening head injuries.

A Hampshire Constabulary spokesman said the man is still in hospital.

As a result, a 21-year-old man from Southampton was arrested on suspicion of inflicting grievous bodily harm and has been bailed until June 7.

Officers would like to talk to a woman who spoke to both men and also helped the victim after the assault, as they believe she will have witnessed the incident.

Anyone with information about the incident is asked to call 101, quoting 44190162876.
