A man has been left with life-changing injuries after an assault in a Derbyshire village – one of two acts of violence in the same night.

On the night of Sunday, August 28, two separate incidents took place in Riddings in Church Street between around 10.30pm and 11pm.

The first victim, a man in his 40s, was left with serious injuries to his head after being assaulted. He remains in hospital with what are believed to be life-changing injuries.

A second man, who is in his 20s, was assaulted and threatened shortly after the first assault. It is believed by police that both incidents were carried out by the same man, who was walking with a blonde-haired woman.
