Police want to speak to two people in connection with an assault at a Huddersfield pub.

On Saturday evening Joe Burnand was viciously beaten by a thug in the Head of Steam next to Huddersfield Railway Station.

The 53-year-old engineer from Crosland Moor had been enjoying a pint when he was attacked in the corridor of the pub. He was left with facial injuries.

The family believes the attacker may have been part of a group on the Ale Trail.

Mr Burnand was left with two black eyes, a bruised and swollen face, and cuts to his mouth. Relatives say Mr Burnand may need plastic surgery.
