Two men have been assaulted in a popular Accrington club.

The pair attacked the men, causing facial injuries to both, before making off from the scene.

One man suffered a number of injuries including a serious cut under his eye, while the second victim suffered a black eye.

Following enquiries, police later arrested a man in connection with the incident.

Detectives are continuing to appeal for witnesses and would urge anyone with information to come forward.

“One male had quite a serious laceration to his face, just under his eye, while the other received a black eye.

“The venue was very busy at the time and there will  have been several witnesses who might be able to help with our enquiries.”
