Police have made a fresh appeal for information after a man was found with serious head injuries near the centre of Inverness.

Members of the public came across the 52-year-old man in Millburn Road at about 01:20 on Sunday.

He was taken to the city's Raigmore Hospital but has since been transferred to Aberdeen Royal Infirmary.

Police Scotland said his condition in hospital was described as serious, but stable.

The man was last seen in Inglis Street at about 00:55 on Sunday, police said.

Heading home

He was found injured near the Morrisons supermarket petrol station in Millburn Road.

He has been described as being 6ft tall and was wearing a black jacket and trousers and black shoes.

Det Insp Mark Czerniakiewicz said: "CID officers are carrying out an investigation to establish how the man came about his injuries and whether any criminality was involved.

"We know that the town centre area was busy with people heading home and would specifically like to hear from anybody using Millburn Road between Falcon Square and Morrisons supermarket between 01:00 and 01.30 on Sunday."

Police have traced the occupants of a car mentioned in an earlier appeal.
