Police are appealing for information after an altercation between two men resulted in an assault earlier this month.

The incident happened at around 5-10 pm on Saturday September 13th at Edisford Bridge in Clitheroe.

“We need witnesses to come forward so that we can establish exactly what has happened and the circumstances that have led to the altercation.

“Anyone with information about what happened or who may have witnessed the incident is urged to contact me direct on 01254 353549 or anonymously through Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.”
