Police are now keen to speak with a man captured on CCTV.

Det. Sgt Nick Hodgeson, from Burnley CID, said: “I would appeal to anyone who recognises the man captured on CCTV to come forward. We are continuing to follow a number of lines of inquiry, but I am keen to hear from anybody who feels they could assist with this investigation.

“The disturbance took place in the street and in broad daylight so it was very visible. I would urge anybody who saw anything to come forward.”
