Man Seriously Injured In Belfast City Centre

Police have issued an appeal after a man was seriously injured in Belfast City Centre in recent months.

An incident reportedly occurred in the Shaftsbury Square area of the city at around 2.30am on Saturday morning, 24 August.

Members of the public are urged to think back to that date and whether they were in the area at the time. Just off the popular Dublin Road, Shaftsbury Square is surrounded by bars and licensed premises, making it a hub of activity late at night.
