DETECTIVES want to speak to a man in relation to a vicious pub fight that left another man, 30s, needing surgery.

Police have released CCTV images of the man they want to speak to about the attack, which took place in the Moonrakers pub car park on Cricklade Road at around midnight on Friday, November 23.

He is described as white, blond-haired and wearing a blue t-shirt.

Det Con Mark Harris said: "We would like to hear from anyone we recognises this man. This was a nasty assault and we would like to hear from anyone who may know about this.

"This is a busy part of Swindon with a busy main road on its doorstep, so someone may have witnessed something.

"If you can help us in anyway, please come forward."
