A MAN was repeatedly punched in the face shortly after leaving a Wisbech nightclub on New Year’s Day.

The victim, a 20-year-old man from Wisbech, was in Chase Street just after 2am - walking home from Spice Nightclub - when the suspects approached him.

He was punched in the face several times and then hit again while he was on the ground.
