He said: 'There was an argument in the pub, I closed the pub and got everyone outside before locking the doors.

The spokesman said an investigation was underway and that no one had been arrested.

Mr Gray said the argument was to do with someone picking up another person's mobile phone.

Taxi driver Mike Keller said he saw commotion outside the pub as he pulled in to park.

He said: 'I saw one bloke throw a drink over the other. The other then threw a punch, but missed.

'Then they ran off down the road [Rose Lane], one was chasing the other.'

Mr Gray said the rock band Come in Silence will still be performing at the pub.
