Police have released CCTV images of a man wanted in connection with an assault outside a nightclub in Bolton.

Between 3.15 and 3.30am on Thursday 8 November 2012, a 21-year-old man and his friend were approached on Mawdsley Street in the town centre outside J2 night club by three other men.

One of the men punched the 21-year-old in the face and walked away. He suffered a fracture to his jaw.
