A GANG attack left a visitor to Ipswich with cuts needing hospital treatment, when he was set upon outside the town's rail station as he waited for a cab home.

The victim, who is in his 20s and from Colchester, was kicked on the ground by two men and two women during the assault on the station forecourt.

His friend, also from Colchester and around the same age, was also set upon in the attack, which started when two men ran from the opposite side of Burrell Road and began pushing and shoving the Essex visitors.

The victims had been in a group of four men but two escaped when the attackers ran toward the group waiting on the forecourt at around 12.15am on Saturday.

One of victims fell to the ground where he was kicked on the floor as two women joined in the attack.

He was treated by paramedics at the scene and then later at hospital in Colchester before being released.

British Transport Police investigating the double assault have appealed for witnesses to contact them.

A middle-aged man is believed to have helped the fallen victim to his feet after watching events on the forecourt, and police are particularly keen for him to get in touch.

All four attackers were white. One of the women had blonde, shoulder-length hair and both women were wearing dark clothing.

One of the male attackers was wearing a yellow shirt and the other had a blue shirt on.

One of the pair may have had a shaved head.

If you witnessed the station attack or have any information about it, contact British Transport Police on 01473 610978.
