Police said he was initially taken to Worthing Hospital for treatment on a suspected broken nose but it later became clear that the injuries were more severe than first thought and he was taken to Portsmouth Hospital for an operation to remove a blood clot.

The two arrested men were interviewed and bailed until March 5 while enquiries continue.

Detective Constable Alan Lawrence said: “Within minutes of releasing the video on Friday, people were calling in and contacting us online and this continued into the evening. It was an extraordinary response and I would like to thank everyone who made contact.”
