A CIRENCESTER teenager has had to visit hospital after an attack in Cirencester skate park.

Between 7.30pm and 8pm on the night of September 2 a large group of strangers entered the skate park and began verbally abusing young skaters.

One teenager, who had been skating with his friends, stood up to the group before being punched to the ground and kicked repeatedly by the other troublemakers.
