Man in hospital following Kirkcudbright assault

A 23-year old man has been taken to hospital with injuries following a disturbance at a festival in Kirkcudbright.

The incident happened shortly after 11pm on Saturday at a bash on St Mary’s Isle, just outside the town. His condition is described as stable.

Police would like to speak to anyone who attended the Festival who may have witnessed the incident or who saw anyone leaving the area in a hurry. In particular we are keen to speak to the occupants of a Silver Rover or MG motor car which had a loud exhaust.
