A seriously injured naked man has been found close to council offices in Dorset.

The 21-year-old had suffered a broken nose, cut lip and had severe swelling to his head and face.

He was discovered in the Chapelhay area of Weymouth on Saturday morning and is being treated in hospital.

Police said it is believed he had been on a night out and had met another man but it was not known how he came to be injured or why he was undressed.

Det Con Simon Austin, of Weymouth CID, said the victim had been in the Dusk nightclub and bar in the early hours and was wearing a black T-shirt, white jeans and black shoes.

He met the other man at about 0450 BST on Saturday outside the bar and the pair walk through the town.

The man is described as white, aged between 18 and 25, about 5ft 8ins to 5ft 10ins, of medium build, with short dark hair.
