Have your say

A MAN split his head open when he was involved in a disturbance in the street.

The 22-year-old was taken to Sunderland Royal after he was left with the gash following the fracas on The Avenue, in Deneside, Seaham, at about 9pm on Sunday, July 8.

He was discharged after his wound was treated.

A man in his 50s was arrested on suspicion of assault, but has been released without charge or bail after he was questioned by police.

Officers investigating say they have spoken to several witnesses, but have asked if anyone else to get in touch if they saw what happened or has information which could help with inquiries.
