The 20-year-old was hospitalised for two days with a small blood clot on his brain, pushing the date he could join the navy back from 8th June until December.

Earlier this month he told the Herald he was now “fine”, but “gutted” about the six-month delay.

Today, Warwickshire Police released CCTV images of a man they want to track down.

He is described as white, or average built with dark hair, aged early to mid-20s and between 5ft 10ins and 6ft tall.

Anyone who recognises the man or witnessed the incident is urged to contact Detective Constable Jo Debarbaro on 101 quoting incident number 50 of 31st May.

Alternatively contact crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111 or via the website www.crimestoppers-uk.org
