[Images ot he men police wish to identify]

Police have released images of seven men they would like to trace following an assault in a central London nightclub.

Officers were called at approximately 01:10hrs on 9 November 2018 to reports of a man assaulted inside the venue in Wardour Street, W1.

On arrival, officers found the victim, a man aged in his 40s, suffering facial injuries. He had been punched several times in the dance floor area of the venue by a group of up to seven males.

He was taken to hospital and discharged but is still receiving treatment for the injuries he sustained.

Detective Constable Jenny Stephens-Wells, of the Central Area Command Unit based at Westminster, who leads the investigation, said: "This appears to have been an unprovoked attack carried out by a group of males in the middle of a busy nightclub. The victim is still suffering the impact of this vicious assault and those responsible are still at liberty.

"We have already spoken to a number of witnesses but so far have been unable to identify those involved. I would ask anyone who recognises the males in these images to contact police immediately."

Anyone with information is asked to contact police on 101 and quote CAD 342/9Nov18 or tweet @MetCC.
