Enquiries ongoing into attack which left two men unconscious at hands of gang in Bellshill

Police say enquiries are continuing into a cowardly mob-handed attack which knocked two men unconscious in Bellshill's Hamilton Road on Saturday, July 24.

The two victims who are in their 20s both had a stint in hospital for facial injuries, such was the ferocity of the attack. This was delivered by a distinctively dressed group of men in white tee shirts and dark coloured shorts around 11.24pm. It is not thought that the men knew their victims but that verbal altercation in the street sparked the violence.
