A MAN has been taken to hospital with severe head injuries, after being assaulted on Portland Street in the early hours of the morning.

Reports on social media indicate the victim was allegedly involved in a fight which broke out in the nearby Yates’s bar, which then carried on to road.

However, a spokesperson for the club confirmed the incident was not related to events inside the bar earlier in the evening.

Although nobody has been arrested in connection with the incident, and images have appeared on social media which appear to show a visible “pool of blood” on the road outside Caffė Nero.

Police were called to the scene at 4:20am.

Portland Street was closed and cordoned off this morning as the investigation took place, causing a traffic jam for morning commuters.

Portland Street has since been fully re-opened by Greater Manchester Police.
