A man was found with a head injury in the early hours of Saturday morning after reports of an assault at an Essex Road pub, police have said.

The Met has not said at which pub the incident happened but a cordon was in place late in the afternoon around the block bounded by Colebrooke Row, St Peter's Street and Essex Road.

The only pub in the block is the former Winchester, which is currently not occupied.
