Police were called to reports of a fight outside a nightclub in London Road on Sunday at 3.45am.

They found three men with stab wounds and a fourth with a head injury.

All four were taken to hospital and none of their injuries are thought to be life-threatening.

Four men – two aged 30 and two aged 25 – were arrested on suspicion of assault, but have since been released under police investigation.

Okey Nwofu, 45, who owns the Kings Lounge nightclub in London Road, told the Post the men ran into his bar following another fight outside.

He said: “There were about seven or eight of them, and one stabbed another. The fight continued in my bar – they were using my chairs, bottles, anything they could find, to attack each other.”

Anyone who witnessed the incident should call police on 101 quoting CAD1325/12AUG or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
