TWO men are recovering from head injuries after they were reportedly attacked by a large group of youths in a North Staffordshire street the early hours of Saturday morning.
The pair had been walking down High Street, near The Marsh, Wolstanton, at around 2.30am when they were approached by a group of unknown males.
They were then hit over the head and robbed – neither received injuries that are believed to be life threatening.
