A man from Birmingham is in a critical condition following an assault in Swansea.

Emergency services were called to Bridge Street near the Villers Arms Public House - the Hafod area of Swansea - at around 6.45pm on Saturday, October 21 – the same day Swansea City played Leicester City at the Swansea.com Stadium.

A 26-year-old man was assaulted in the street by an unknown man who was part of a larger group of men. He later collapsed at home.
