Detectives investigating a serious assault in Macclesfield have released a CCTV picture of two people they would like to speak to in connection with the incident.

Emergency services were called to Pickford Street, Macclesfield at around 2.45am on Sunday 12 September, following reports of a large altercation outside of Zinc Popworld Nightclub.

Three people sustained serious injuries, and were taken to hospital. They have since been released from hospital.

A 22-year-old man from Macclesfield was arrested in relation to the incident and has since been released under investigation.
