A man suffered a serious head injury when he was assaulted by a machete-wielding attacker at a Huddersfield car wash.

Detectives are appealing for information after the 32-year-old man was attacked by a man with a machete at the Spa Car Wash on Manchester Road in Thornton Lodge on Sunday.

Police were called at around 2.40pm when the victim attended Huddersfield Royal Infirmary. He remains in hospital in a stable condition, with injuries that are not believed to be life-threatening.
