Police officers were called to a stretch of Cranbrook Road between Ilford and Gants Hill this morning after a man was hospitalised in a brutal attack.

A spokesman for the Metropolitan Police told the Recorder officers were called at 5.38am to Cranbrook Road between Beehive Lane and Gants Hill Roundabout, where a man in his 20s had been assaulted with a blunt instrument.

That stretch of Cranbrook Road was closed while emergency services responded to the incident and a crime scene was in place throughout Wednesday morning.

He was taken to hospital where doctors have confirmed his injuries are not life threatening or life changing.

There have been no arrests. Enquiries continue.

A London Ambulance Service spokeswoman confirmed an ambulance was sent to the scene at 5.45am.

She added: “We treated a person and took them to hospital as a priority.”
