Blood was reported to have spilled across a city centre street after a man was assaulted in the early hours of the morning.

The victim, a man in his 20s, was left with head and neck injuries after being assaulted on Preston’s Guildhall Street on Friday morning. He was found hurt on nearby Market Place and taken to hospital for treatment.

A police cordon was put in place on Guildhall Street throughout much of Friday morning with officers manning the cordon as crowds flocked to the city centre to pay their respects to Queen Elizabeth II. Hours later, blood could still be reportedly seen on the street.
