A MAN is recovering in hospital after being injured in an ‘unprovoked’ attack in Blackburn town centre.

The 28-year-old was left with a fractured jaw and broken ankle after being set up in the back alley of Retro bar, in Mill Lane on Tuesday.

He was assaulted after arranging to meet up with an acquaintance to amicably settle an ongoing personal issue.

But as the Blackburn man arrived with two friends, he was caught off guard by a group of up to eight Asian males waiting for him shortly after 4.45pm.
