'Stark images' have been released after a Bristol man was hit by a car in a racially-aggravated attack.

Avon and Somerset Police is appealing for more information about who was driving the dark blue Honda Accord in Bristol when it hit a 21-year-old man.

It happened on Monks Park Avenue in Horfield at about 4.30pm on Wednesday 22 July.

The victim, known as K, was walking home from work when the incident happened. Police say people inside the car shouted "racist abuse at him before running off."

K suffered serious facial injuries and a broken leg.

He is slowly recovering but has been left with scars across his face.

K says he will be scarred for life after the incident.

Four men have been arrested on suspicion of attempted murder.

Now, two months on from the incident, Avon and Somerset Police has released images of the damage caused to the car which hit K in the hope it may help the investigation.

You can see from the impact damage to the car and the wall how K came by such significant injuries. We're grateful to everyone who has contacted us following our earlier appeals. While we have made arrests we do still need to hear from anyone who saw the occupants of blue car or knows who was driving it.
