The victim of an unprovoked attack may never fully recover, say officers hunting for the perpetrators.

CCTV footage has been released of three men being sought by police investigating the assault in Brighton.

A 20-year-old was punched to the face and kicked and stamped on numerous times in the attack outside Molly Malones Irish Pub, West Street at 3.30am on October 7.

The victim had a serious head injury and was treated at Hurstwood Park Neurological Centre.

A police spokeswoman said: "The victim is still recovering from the assault and has been forced to take a year off his university course as a result.

"He may never fully recover and is still undergoing treatment. Enquiries have been on-going but we have yet to trace the offenders.

"We would like talk to the three men shown in this CCTV image to help eliminate them from our enquiries.

"One of them has a distinctive tattoo on his neck.

"We hope that this image will prompt someone to call the police with the identity of these men, or call us with any other information about the incident."

Call Sussex Police on 101, quoting serial 282 of 7/10 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.

5 Weeks ago and they just release this....
Put it on Crimewatch.... The only hope of catching them is to get someone involved other than the police. Should have been done weeks ago.
