A police probe is under way after an injured man was found slumped on a Sheffield street.

The 25-year-old was discovered outside The Hanover pub in Clarke Street, Broomhall, at around 9.30pm on Monday.

No further details, or the nature of his injuries, have been released by South Yorkshire Police – only that detectives are trying to establish how the man sustained them.

He is in hospital.

A South Yorkshire Police spokesman said: “Police are trying to establish the circumstances of how a 25-year-old man came to be injured. The man was found in Clarke Street and is currently in hospital receiving treatment.

“Initial inquiries are being carried out at the scene.”

Yesterday a police tent had been erected at the spot where the injured man was found.

Part of the road was taped off, and The Hanover pub inside the cordon was closed until police said it could reopen.

Mohammed Ali, aged 40, who lives nearby on Exeter Drive, said he was prevented from following his usual route while taking his son to school.

“The tent was outside The Hanover pub, opposite the children’s play area, and there were just loads of police in the area,” he said.

“People round here are naturally concerned about what has happened but the police seemed reluctant to say anything.

“It is a very big area that has been cordoned off and there’s been a small gathering looking on.”
