POLICE are hunting a man after a festival-goer was seriously assaulted at Belladrum and was left needing hospital treatment.

The 18-year-old victim of the assault was staying in the red campsite at Belladrum Tartan Heart Festival when he was attacked at around 2.30am on Sunday.

He suffered "serious injuries" and was taken to Raigmore Hospital.

Officers are working to identify a man as part of the ongoing investigation.

He is described as being white, aged between 30 and 40, with dark hair and dark stubble. He was around 5ft 6in or 5ft 7in tall, of medium build and may have been wearing a blue t-shirt. This man was in the company of three children at the time.
