Detectives investigating an attack on a 28-year-old man in Newry during the earlier hours of New Year's Day are appealing for information.

At around 2.30am on January 1 police said it was reported that "an altercation took place between a number of men in the area of Canal Street".

A 28-year-old man sustained serious injuries, including a broken nose, fractures to his eye socket and jaw and bruising to his face and body.

A 21-year-old man was arrested in the Newry area yesterday evening in connection with the incident.

He appeared before Newry Magistrates Court earlier today charged with causing grievous bodily harm with intent and was remanded in custody.
