Investigations are underway after a 53 year old man was found with serious head injuries in the Wibsey Park area of Bradford during the early hours of Sunday morning.

At around 6:30am local man Peter Tordoff was discovered on a pavement with a fractured cheek bone, cuts and bruising.

His family have released his name and photograph to assist officers in piecing together the circumstances which have led to his injuries.

Mr Tordoff is currently in a critical condition at Bradford Royal Infirmary.

Detective Inspector Nicola Bryar of Bradford South CID said:

'We know that Peter had been out in Bradford City Centre on Saturday and had been drinking in the Titus Salt pub at around 3pm.

'It is not clear, however; where Peter went after this time and how he came to be in the park at Wibsey with these serious injuries.

'Peter may have continued on to other pubs in the area and we would like to hear from anyone who could help us work out his movements that day.

'He often walks home alone and would most likely have travelled from the City Centre, up Little Horton Lane on to St Enochs and through Wibsey Park.

'Again, we would like to hear from anyone who may have seen him making his way along this route that we suspect he could have taken. At the time he was wearing a dark coloured jacket and dark trousers.

'Peter is not currently in a condition to account for the injuries he has received and it is important we hear from anyone who could offer information that could further our enquiries.

'Officers are also studying CCTV from the area to check if it could provide any clues as to the cicumstances of this incident.'
