A man was found with life-threatening injuries in Ilkeston after watching the Nottingham Forest v Leeds match at the weekend. Derbyshire police are appealing for information from the public as they investigate the incident.

The injured man, who is in his 60s, had been to watch the game on Sunday (February 5) before catching a bus home to Ilkeston. He left Nottingham at around 6.30pm.

He is believed to have got off the bus near the Tesco in Nottingham Road, Ilkeston, just after 7pm. He was later found unconscious on Heathfield Avenue.

The man was taken to the Queen's Medical Centre in Nottingham with life-threatening injuries, according to Derbyshire Constabulary. A force spokesperson said: "It is currently unclear how the man came by his injuries and his family have been made aware.

"At this stage, officers are treating it as an isolated incident. Residents in the area will see an increased police presence throughout the day as investigations continue.

"Officers are particularly keen to speak to a dog walker who found the man on the street as well as anyone who saw him either on the bus or walking through Ilkeston." He was wearing a black jumper, blue and red body warmer, a Nottingham Forest hat and t-shirt, blue jeans and blue shoes.

Anyone who was in the area at the time of the incident and has any information is asked to contact police on 101, quoting the reference 23*75725.
