A man has suffered serious head injuries after being punched and kicked in a "vicious'' attack.

The 42-year-old victim was set upon by another man outside flats in George Court, Hamilton, South Lanarkshire, at around 3.15pm on Thursday.

He was initially taken by ambulance to Hairmyres Hospital in East Kilbride, but was later transferred to Glasgow's Queen Elizabeth University Hospital. Staff there say he is in a stable condition.

The suspect, who walked off after the attack, is said to be around 6ft tall, with a slim build. He was wearing a black tracksuit top with white stripes on the arms, black tracksuit trousers and white trainers.

Detective Constable Stewart Walton, of Cambuslang CID, said: "This was a vicious attack which has left a man with serious injuries to his head.

"We are currently reviewing CCTV footage to help identify the person responsible and enquiries so far have revealed that there were many people in the vicinity at the time this assault took place.

"I urge these people to come forward immediately as they may have information that could assist our inquiry.''
