Man left lying unconscious in Wisbech car park after teenage gang’s brutal attack

A MAN has suffered serious head injuries after he was set upon by a gang of teenagers in Wisbech.

The 23-year-old was kicked in the head until he lay unconscious on the floor of McColl’s car park, off Ollard Avenue.

He was confronted by the gang between 9pm and 9.30pm on Saturday (November 24).

The victim tried to run off, but he was pushed to the floor where he was repeatedly punched and kicked to the head, face and body until he fell unconscious.

A member of the public discovered him lying on the ground and called an ambulance. He was taken to Queen Elizabeth Hospital, in King’s Lynn, for treatment and has since been discharged.
