A man has had specialist treatment after being stamped on the head in an attack at an Essex nightclub.

The 22-year-old was at Liquid in Basildon at 0215 BST on Saturday when he was punched, knocked to the floor and his head stamped on.

He was taken to Basildon Hospital by taxi and transferred to Broomfield Hospital where screws and a metal plate were inserted to treat a fractured jaw.

Witnesses to the attack are asked to contact police.

Officers would also like to hear from anyone who saw a man covered in blood outside the club, and the taxi driver who took the man to hospital.

The man is now recovering at home, police said.
