A man who was "left for dead" after being attacked outside a pub in Cumbria has released a photograph of his injuries in a bid to find his attacker.

The man, aged in his 30s, was found outside the Fox and Hounds pub in Ennerdale Bridge at about 21:40 BST on 27 August with "serious injuries".

He suffered a broken eye socket and needed internal and external stitching to his face and tongue.

Police said it could have been a murder inquiry if he had not been found.

Cumbria Police's Det Con Paul Scougal, said: "The victim was seriously injured in this unprovoked attack and was left for dead.

"He does not remember what happened that night. He recalls going outside the pub to get a signal on his mobile phone and the next thing waking up in an ambulance in pain and covered in blood.

"I appeal to anyone who was at the show or in the area of the Fox and Hounds at the time, or even if they heard anyone talking about it since, to contact the police."
