Police have released CCTV footage of a group of men after a woman's hair was set alight in a Nuneaton nightclub.

The victim - a 31-year-old woman from Bedworth - was in Fever nightclub on Newdgate Street on Saturday 2nd May at around 11:30pm when a man she did not know set fire to her hair. He then left the nightclub through the back door.

The victim suffered minor injuries from the assault.

The suspect is a white man and at the time of the incident, he was wearing a white shirt with dark jeans.

"This is a seemingly senseless, unprovoked attack which could have resulted in serious injuries.

"Thankfully, the victim was not seriously injured though the incident has been very distressing for her.

"We are very keen to hear from the three men pictured in the CCTV and urge them, or anyone who knows them, to get in contact as soon as possible."

Grieving daughter wants extra funding into brain cancer research

A woman whose mother died from a brain tumour has gone to Westminster to try to persuade MPs to allocate more money for research into the condition.

Breast cancer and leukaemia get around £30m a year from the government, but brain cancer gets only £3m - despite it being the biggest cancer killer for children and adults under 40.

Clare Davis from Nuneaton is trying to convince MPs that brain tumour research should get the same amount of money as other cancers.
