Olly Murs fans who were left disappointed and without much hope of a refund have been offered tickets to two of the singer's alternative show dates.

Promotion company Stephen C Associates left ticket holders stunned last week when they announced that the company had gone into liquidation and Murs' Exeter gig at Powderham Castle was cancelled.

In a statement posted on Twitter Olly Murs told his fans they could attend the Swansea or Portsmouth shows instead next month.

Fans had spent hundreds to see the X Factor star and many were left out of pocket by the cancellation. The company's online statement said it was not in a position to offer a refund. Those who had paid with a credit card could try to claim their money back through their card provider. Those who had paid using a debit card however, were instructed to appeal to the liquidators for a refund from any money left over from closing down Stephen C Associates.

Detectives investigating an alleged assault on Portland are renewing their appeal for anyone with information to come forward as they are looking for a possible injured person.

At 4.40am on Saturday July 22, Dorset Police received a report that several people entered an address on Fortuneswell which contained a number of men and threatened some of them with a knife.

A fight ensued during which it appears someone was injured.

The people then left the address, however it is unclear at this time if anything was taken from the property.

Officers, including armed officers and a dog unit, attended and searched the area.

Despite our search and further enquiries we are yet to find the injured person.

The inspection of the scene led us to believe that one of the people involved may be seriously injured. We are very concerned about this person and need to ensure they get the necessary medical help.

Anyone who knows of this injured person’s whereabouts should contact us urgently to enable us to help.

– Detective Inspector Paul Graham, of Dorset Police CID

A 43-year-old man, a 36-year-old man and a 29-year-old woman, all from the Weymouth area, and a 17-year-old boy of no fixed abode, were arrested on suspicion of assault and have been released under investigation.
