POLICE who have spent four months investigating an attack which left a man with a broken jaw have just released a CCTV image of a suspect.

The assault happened between 4.30 and 6pm on October 14, when a man and his friend were walking along Queen Victoria Street, Mill Hill, Blackburn with two dogs.

Then three men, believed to be in their 20s, drove past the victim and his friend in a dark car, possibly a Ford Fiesta.
