DETECTIVES investigating an assault at a pub in Toppesfield are appealing for further information from the public.

A 35-year-old man from the Halstead area has been arrested and bailed on suspicion of GBH until July 18.

The incident happened at the Green Man pub in Church Lane in the early hours of May 26. A fight broke out in a beer tent at the back of the pub involving a group of men.

A 39-year-old man from Halstead received serious fractures to his face and was detained in hospital overnight, but may require reconstructive surgery.

Ds Becky Young said: “Lots of people in the village are aware of this incident but I need any other witnesses who were there on the night and who haven’t spoken to police to get in touch urgently.”

Anyone with information should call Braintree CID on 101 or via Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
