A man is still recovering from his injuries after a horrific attack saw him kicked while he lay on the ground by two men who high-fived when fleeing the scene, police say.

CCTV footage was released by The Metropolitan Police on Thursday and shows two men rain down blows on the victim outside of a Domino’s Pizza takeaway in Chalk Farm, north London on 5 July last year.

According to police, the 27-year-old victim was left with a fractured cheekbone, a fractured eye socket and broken ribs and is still receiving treatment for his injuries, over six months after the attack.

The victim’s 26-year-old female friend also received injuries to her arm as she tried to protect the man.

Moments after the assault, the two men were captured "high-fiving" as they walked towards Primrose Hill in Regent’s Park.

The other man is a white six foot two man, who is also thought to be around 25, with spiky hair and a skinny build. He was wearing a denim three-quarter length shirt when the incident took place.

Police have appealed for witnesses and anyone with information on the attackers.

Anybody who has information is urged to contact  Camden CID on 0207 8733 6588.
