Police cordoned off Brick Lane

The 24-year-old suffered severe head injuries when he was attacked outside the Brickhouse restaurant and cabaret club in the Truman Brewery around 2am.

Officers believe he was assaulted and then hit his head on a car parked in the street but said the incident is not being treated as a traffic accident.

He was taken to an East London Hospital where his condition is described as serious but not life-threatening and a large area of Brick Lane was cordoned off for forensic evidence gathering.

Cops believe there was a large crowd outside the Truman Brewery at the time of the assault and are appealing for witnesses to contact them.

Anyone with information can contact Det Con Richard Beeton from the violent crime unit at Limehouse Police Station on 0300 123 1212 or calling crime stoppers on 0800 555 111.
