West Midlands police are appealing for information about the men (pictured below) who are wanted in connection to an assault outside a pub in Harborne in the early hours of Saturday 5th October.

The victim of the attack alleges that moments after taking this seemingly good-spirited photo outside the Vine pub they launched a vicious attack on him. The 27-year-old man from Rubery was knocked unconscious, repeatedly stamped on as he lay on the floor and left needing facial surgery.

Police are appealing to the public for information about the attack - which happened around 1.30am - or for anyone that can identify the men in the photo.
