Detective Inspector Sharn Basra, from the Bedfordshire and Hertfordshire Major Crime Unit, said: "We are very keen to speak to two men who were reported as being in the immediate area at the time the altercation initially took place. The men, who are believed to have run off from the scene, have been described as black and in their late teens to early twenties.

"I would urge the men described, or anyone who knows them, to get in contact as we would like to eliminate them from our enquiries and they could provide us with information that could prove vital to our investigation. I would also be interested to hear from anyone who witnessed the incident or is aware of events leading up to it."
