Police are appealing for information after a man was assaulted by a group of people as he walked to see Newcastle United play Nottingham Forest at St James' Park on Friday night.

The 35-year-old victim was targeted as he made his way along a footpath alongside City Walls at 7.30pm.

It is believed those involved fled the scene after the incident, but a short time later police in the area arrested four people on suspicion of assault.

Those arrested include two 21-year-old men and two women aged 19 and 18.
