A young woman was taken to hospital with head injuries after being allegedly glassed in a Letchworth pub on Saturday night – with a 44-year-old arrested on suspicion of GBH.

At about 11.30pm on Saturday night, a woman aged in her 20s was involved in an argument while leaving The Platform, on the corner of Station Road and Eastcheap in the town centre.

She is alleged to have been punched and kicked by two people, with a glass bottle said to have been smashed on her head.

The victim, who was taken to Stevenage’s Lister Hospital, suffered a cut to her head that had to be glued.

A spokesman for the ambulance service said that a paramedic had attended the scene in a rapid response vehicle and taken the victim to hospital, and that her condition was not thought to be life-threatening or serious.
