“We have already carried out a number of enquiries however we are keen to speak to anyone else who witnessed what happened, either inside the pub or outside.
“We believe both the pub and the road outside will have been busy with people enjoying a night out so we think there will be a number of witnesses we have yet to identify.
“If you believe you may have information that could assist our investigation, please do not hesitate to get in touch.”
