A man from Godmanchester who was robbed and attacked on Saturday night is appealing for any witnesses to the incident to come forward.

Nik Tooke left the Olmo Lounge in Huntingdon's High Street just after 11pm on Saturday when he was robbed and attacked.

Cambridgeshire police are now appealing for witnesses following the incident, which Nik says "was all a blur" and left him with facial injuries.

He said: "I left Olmo lounge just after 11pm on Saturday, that's all I remember until I was in hospital in the early hours of Sunday morning, with my partner and nurses by my side.

"I'm usually really confident and it has really knocked me for six. I have never thought that it would happen to me."
