A man could lose his left eye after being attacked in Leighton Buzzard at the weekend.

The 40 year old was attacked by up to three men in the library carpark at about 10 past midnight on Sunday morning. It is believed that after the attack, three men left the area in a silver-coloured car.

The injured man was taken to the Luton and Dunstable hospital where he is currently being treated for serious head injuries including a fractured jaw and the possibility of losing his left eye. However, the injuries are not thought to be life-threatening.

Detectives are looking at the possibility that prior to the incident, a group of four men were drinking in Rumours nightclub in Leighton Buzzard. As such, they are appealing for anyone who may have seen an altercation or disagreement amongst a group of men in the club, to contact them.

Three men, aged 30, 33 and 38 - all from the Leighton Buzzard area, have been arrested in connection with this incident and released on police bail.

Police are asking anybody who witnessed the fight in the car-park, or saw an altercation amongst a group of men in Rumours, to contact Detective Constable Gary Hales of Bedfordshire Police on 01234 841212, or text 07786 200011, or call Crimestoppers, anonymously if preferred, on 0800 555 111.
