Published: Monday, 09 August 2010

A TOWPATH walker was attacked from behind as he walked by the side of the River Great Ouse in Ely, having to be treated in hospital.

He was walking towards the city in daylight when he was hit on the head from behind with an object, with his attacker then running off, Alan Tilbury tells us.

His injuries resulted in him having to be taken to  Addenbrooke's Hospital in Cambridge.

Police are now appealing for information following the incident at around 8.30am on Saturday, as the 24 years old man who was struck has no idea who his attacker was.
