A man has been left seriously injured after being attacked at a car boot sale. Police say that the 42-year-old victim is in a 'serious condition' in hospital.

It comes after he was punched to the head at EBoot Market & Car Boots in Lea Marston, North Warwickshire earlier this morning (May 12).

No arrests have been made but, as the car boot was packed with people, detectives are urging any witnesses to come forward. They say they especially want to speak to three men involved in the attack.

Investigating officer, Detective Sergeant Michael Brennen said : “This was a nasty incident which has seen the victim sustain a serious head injury.

“While no arrests have been made, investigations are ongoing to identify three men who are believed to have been involved.

“We know there would have been a lot of people at this car boot sale this morning who potentially will have seen the incident and I would urge them to get in touch as they may have vital information that could help with our enquiries.

“The suspects are believed to have left in a vehicle, so I would also appeal to anyone who may have dash cam footage of the vehicle leaving the car boot.”
