“We urge anyone with information that could assist our investigation to come forward. We are following lines of enquiry, but need the public’s help to determine the events leading up to the incident in which a man was seriously injured.”

Anyone who has any information is asked to contact police on 101 quoting Op Brecon, or via Bedfordshire Police's website.
