A door supervisor has been left with serious head injuries after he was assaulted outside a city centre bar last weekend.
Police have now released CCTV footage of the incident in a bid to trace those responsible.
The incident took place just after midnight on Sunday November 3 outside the Mobius Bar, Braunstone Gate, Leicester.
The victim, aged 40, was working outside the bar when he was approached by four men of Middle Eastern appearance who he refused to let into the premises.
Following an altercation three of the men assaulted the victim using a metal barrier. The victim sustained a fracture to his skull and was released from hospital on Wednesday (November 6) following treatment.
