*Police are trying to identify ten men after two men were left badly injured in a fight at Parkstone railway station in Dorset on Saturday. *
Detective Constable Matt Bevan said: “Around 1.30am, two couples were arguing on Platform 2 at the station but members of station staff and passengers stepped in to diffuse the situation.
“As things began to calm down, a group of between five and ten men decided to get involved and a fight broke out, resulting in two of the men that had diffused the situation being knocked unconscious.
“This was a nasty and unprovoked attack on two men who were simply trying to help out in an unrelated matter. It is vital we identify those responsible and we hope the public can help us do so. “If you recognise the men, or have any information about the incident, please get in touch
