Police have released images of two people chasing attackers who left a gay man for dead in the street.

Morgan Fevre was violently snapped at after being asked why he was “wearing a girl’s jacket” and dubbed a “f**king f*g”.

The 22-year-old suffered a brain hemorrhage and required surgery after being attacked in Manchester in the early hours of April 10.

He was left with three shattered teeth and broken bones in his nose, cheek and around his eye socket.

Morgan – a support worker for adults with learning difficulties – moved to Manchester from the small market town of Retford, Nottinghamshire, more than a year ago to work.

His family previously revealed that he made the switch because he felt he would be less likely to experience homophobia in a larger city with a thriving LGBT+ scene.

Parents Paul and Dawn Fevre rushed from their hometown to be by his side at Salford Royal as he fought for his life.

Morgan is now out of the hospital and continuing his recovery, but the search for his attackers continues.

Greater Manchester Police have released images taken by CCTV after the Charlotte Street incident at around 1.35am.

Detectives say they want to speak to the man and woman seen in the footage.

Detective Constable Lucy Hatton said: “This was an unprovoked street attack of which the victim has very little recollection.

“Morgan was hit in the head and then fell to the ground and spent 10 days in hospital being treated for head and facial injuries.

“He has since been discharged from hospital but is still suffering from the after-effects of the incident.”

Last month his father revealed his son had no recollection of the attack but recalled receiving homophobic abuse and negative comments about his sequined jacket before it happened.

He said: “Morgan would go into town on his own and make new friends while he was out, he’s that kind of guy.

“But now, I was with him yesterday and he’s just like, ‘I don’t think I could ever go out again.’
