AN 18-year-old woman from Leconfield was punched in the face during a fight at the Cross Keys in Beverley.

Police are appealing for witnesses following the assault, which occurred between midnight and 12.40am on Sunday April 25.

It is alleged a fight took place in the back room of the pub, on Lairgate, which resulted in the woman being hit and a 21-year-old man who was working as door staff at the pub also being punched in the face, back and shoulder. Neither victim required hospital treatment.

Additional door staff escorted a 45-year-old Beverley man outside the pub, where he was arrested by police for assault causing actual bodily harm. He was later released on police bail, pending further enquiries.

Witnesses should ring Humberside Police on 0845 6060222, quoting reference number CS/1751262/2010.
