Investigation closed into Creamfields incident Date published: 10th November 2017 3.24pm

Cheshire police have closed an investigation into alleged assault at Creamfields earlier this year.

On Sunday 27 August at 5:15pm, police were made aware of a man with serious facial injuries at the onsite hospital at Creamfields.

The 21-year-old from Essex was taken to Aintree Hospital for medical treatment.

Detective Sergeant Lianne Macfarlane said: “Officers have worked extremely hard to try and establish how the victim sustained his injuries. No-one has come forward to say they witnessed the incident, and the victim has no recollection of what happened to cause the injuries. We have made contact with those who provided relevant information via the social media post, but unfortunately we have not been able to find anyone who witnessed the actual incident take place. CCTV has not brought about any further lines of enquiry either.

“This was a serious incident where a man was left with significant facial injuries, but I want to reassure the public that we have spent a long time investigating this incident and have exhausted all lines of enquiry. As such, the only option is now is to close the investigation.

“But if new information becomes available we will reopen it. If there is anyone who witnessed the incident occur, please come forward and report it to us quoting incident number 745 of 27 August 2017. Alternatively, if you wish to remain anonymous, you can report it via Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.”
