POLICE are re-appealing for witnesses after a man was dragged along by a car after in Wigan.

At around 12.40am on Sunday June 21, two men in their 40s, were on Banner Street, Hindley, when a man in an old-style dark Landrover approached them.

An altercation occurred with the passenger of the Landrover, during which one of the men was injured. After a few minutes the passenger got back into the vehicle.
