Three men standing at the ground floor bar shouted at the woman
and her friend before following them down the flight of stairs
towards the basement – pushing them a few times.

The assault left the woman with a black eye and her friend with
abrasions to his face.
Detectives are following a number of lines of enquiry under
their investigation into the incident but are now issuing CCTV

appeal and investigation into the assault.

incident or who thinks they recognise the man pictured in the CCTV

incident occurs we will do all we can to ensure the perpetrators
