A man has been arrested on suspicion of causing grievous bodily harm following a brawl outside a Letchworth pub.

Police are appealing for witnesses today following an assault which took place outside The Colonnade in the early hours of Sunday morning.

At about 1.50am, a pair of men became involved in a fight, which resulted in two more men joining the scuffle and one of the original men falling to the floor.

The three men together then began to attack the man on the floor.

The injured man was taken to the Lister Hospital in Stevenage for treatment and was later discharged.
