POLICE have launched an appeal after a man was found lying in a Birmingham bus stop in the early hours of New Years Day.

A passing ambulance spotted the 27-year-old man lying on his back at a bus stop in Priory Queensway at around 5.40am.

He was taken to hospital with an injury to his mouth and his condition is now described as stable.

At this stage it is unclear if whether or not the man had fallen or been the victim of an attack.

Detective Sergeant Jackie Morrin, from Force CID, said: “At the moment the man has been unable to give us details of what happened and we need any witnesses to come forward and help us with this investigation.

“While this may have happened in the early hours we know there were lots of people out in the city centre celebrating New Year’s Eve and someone may have seen what happened.”

Anyone with information should contact DS Morrin on 101 or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
