Teen gang fracture Carlisle man's eye socket in savage beating

A man was left with a fractured eye socket after being beaten up by teenagers in Carlisle.

Police say the victim, 23, was punched and kicked in the eye after the attack.

It happened near the old railway bridge between the cemetery and Ridley Road, close to Gillford Park Rugby Club on August 8.

A police spokesman said: “The victim had walked past a group of young males and females and shortly after he’d gone past, two or three of the males ran up to him and beat him to the ground.

“We believe the youths may have been wearing hooded tops.

“Ideally we would like the females in that group to come forward.”

Witnesses should contact DC Watson on 101.

Yes. It's a start. The standards we want will take time

No. Patients deserve better. We're at risk so long as hospitals aren't good enough

I don't believe hospitals in Cumbria will ever achieve the excellence they've promised
