POLICE have issued an appeal for help in their hunt for a man who launched an unprovoked assault on a mum-of-three at the Reminisce music festival.

The woman had been looking for her friend after getting separated during the event at Sherdley Park when she was assaulted with no warning.

The victim, a care home worker, says she had no interaction with her attacker who hit her in the face after she had dropped her drink.

She said the assault took place at around 7.30pm and left her with a severe black eye and bruises to an eyebrow and on the right side of her face as well as whiplash.

She attended the walk-in centre and has since been unable to go into the care home where she works due to her injuries.
