Police are asking for help after an 18-year-old was attacked in the street and suffered a fractured jaw.

Detectives have released some CCTV images of two men they wish to speak with following an assault outside a bar in the early hours of September 3. 

The incident took place on Clifton Street in Blackpool just before 2.25am.

The 18-year-old victim and his friends had been talking to two other men outside a bar.

They then proceeded towards Queen Street and the discussion initially continued, before one of the men punched the victim once in the face, causing him to fall to the ground and momentarily lose consciousness.
