Lancashire Police confirmed they were called to reports of an assault at Bodrum takeaway on Queen Street in the early hours of Monday, September 4.

A police spokeswoman said a man got into an argument with a woman and then hit her in the face.

The incident happened just before 1am. The woman was taken to hospital.

The spokeswoman said the two people were known to each other and the victim had “refused to make a complaint” so no further action was being taken.
