Runcorn & Widnes Weekly News - - Front Page - BY SO­PHIE MCCOID

SHOCK­ING images show­ing a man’s hor­rific in­juries af­ter be­ing at­tacked at Cream­fields are be­ing shared on so­cial me­dia by a woman try­ing to help track down the at­tack­ers.

Meg Duck­worth, 22, shared two graphic images of a man’s cheek miss­ing a chunk, in the hope of iden­ti­fy­ing those re­spon­si­ble.

Tak­ing to Face­book in a post she en­cour­aged oth­ers to share, Meg said: “This hap­pened on Sun­day night at CREAM­FIELDS and I’m try­ing to help the poor lad find more wit­nesses than what he has! It hap­pened near the taxi rank be­tween 3pm and 5pm any in­for­ma­tion would be greatly ap­pre­ci­ated and your name will be kept COM­PLETELY CON­FI­DEN­TIAL!!!

“His in­juries are hor­rific his face is smashed to bits with bro­ken bones and frac­tures and once the swelling has gone down ● he may need fur­ther surgery.”

Meg said she was shar- ing the images as she’d pre­vi­ously been a vic­tim of an as­sault and knew the ef­fects it could have on a per­son’s phys­i­cal and men­tal well­be­ing.

She added: “As pre­vi­ously I’ve been a vic­tim of a vi­cious as­sault I know how aw­ful it can be it ef­fects you phys­i­cally and men­tally es­pe­cially when your face is bro­ken and the fact no one has owned up to it is dis­gust­ing.

“This lad needs jus­tice!!! Who­ever did this needs to pay the price!!

“How can you live with your­self know­ing you have done this to some­body?

“Some­one knows who you are!!! And CCTV is be­ing checked so come for­ward be­cause you will be found out!!

“A fes­ti­val is a place to en­joy your­self and the music not to cause se­ri­ous harm or in­jury to an­other per­son. Any help or in­for­ma­tion would be great.”

Any­one with any in­for­ma­tion should call Cheshire po­lice on 101 quot­ing in­ci­dent 745 of Au­gust 27 or Crimestop­pers on 0800 555 111.
