Man in hospital after attack at car boot sale

Police are looking for three suspects after a man was taken to hospital following a serious assault at a car boot sale.

The victim, 42, was reportedly punched to the head at the event on Haunch Lane, Lea Marston shortly before 08:45 BST on Sunday.

He remains in a serious condition, said Warwickshire Police, which is appealing for witnesses to the "nasty" attack.

Three men are believed to have been involved in the assault, and officers think they left the car boot sale in a vehicle.

"This was a nasty incident which has seen the victim sustain a serious head injury," said Det Sgt Michael Brennen.

There would have been a lot of people at the car boot sale who potentially saw what happened, added the detective, who urged them to get in touch, as they may have "vital" information.

Witnesses to the attack have been asked to contact Warwickshire Police on 101.
