The family of a man found unconscious in a Leicester street have appealed for help to find out how he was injured.

Muhammad Hussain, 38, from Nottinghamshire, was found on 24 November with a serious head injury.

He was spotted by a passerby in an underpass on the junction of Burleys Way and Church Gate at about 02:30 GMT.

Leicestershire Police said the family of Mr Hussain, who is in a critical condition in Nottingham's QMC, are "desperate for answers".

Det Con Denise Reidy said Mr Hussain was unfamiliar with Leicester city centre and his family are unsure how he got there and who he was with that night.

She said: "We are keeping an open mind as to how the incident occurred and we would like to speak to anyone who saw or spoke to Muhammad during the evening of Saturday 23 November and the early hours of Sunday 24 November.

"Muhammad's family are devastated over what has happened and are desperate for answers. They have released a photo in the hope that it might jog someone's memory."

DC Reidy said officers would like to trace a potential witness who directed a member of the public towards police officers.

He is described as black, aged around 30, approximately 5'8" tall, with short afro style hair, carrying a small bag believed to have been a takeaway food bag.
