BREAKING: Man air-lifted to hospital after assault in Highbridge

A man has been air-lifted to hospital this evening (Sunday) following a serious incident in Highbridge.

A young man was allegedly struck with a golf club by an attacker in Morland Road at around 6pm.

Police and ambulance crews were called to the scene and the man was rushed to a nearby air ambulance.

Residents told Burnham-On-Sea.com that the injured man was lying in the road near the junction with North Avenue, which has been sealed off by Police as the investigation gets underway.

A yellow Dorset and Somerset air ambulance landed in a car park at nearby King Alfred School and took off at 8.15pm with the casualty onboard.
