The cause of his injuries are still being investigated, but a police spokesperson said they are consistent with him having been a victim of assault.

Yesterday, police officers arrested a 31-year-old man from Newmarket and a 28-year-old man from Cambridgeshire in connection with the incident.

A 40-year-old man who was arrested on Sunday night, also on suspicion of assault causing grievous bodily harm, has been released on bail until Wednesday, September 15.

Police want to speak to anyone who was in the area between 11.30pm on Sunday night and midnight and saw or heard anything that could assist the investigation.

Any motorists passing through with a dashcam in their vehicle are asked to review the footage.

Anyone with information about this incident is asked to contact West CID at Bury St Edmunds Police Station, by emailing Peter.Gray@suffolk.police.uk or on the police website, quoting reference 46171/21.
