We are appealing for witnesses and information following an incident of assault and criminal damage in Hertford.

At around 8.30pm on Saturday (20 November) a group of six men got out of a taxi and tried to gain entry to The White Hart pub in Salisbury Square.

When they were refused entry, two of the group became aggressive and the body camera of a member of staff was thrown to the ground, causing it to break.

The first man is described as white, aged 25-30, with short blond hair, of slim build, wearing black t-shirt and dark jeans. The second man was also white, aged 25-30, with short grey hair, of muscular build, wearing a black t-shirt, dark blue jeans and white trainers

PC Sue Loughran, who is investigating, said: “I’d like to hear from anyone who was in the area of the White Hart Pub on Saturday evening and witnessed this incident.

“We’re investigating the circumstances surrounding it, with CCTV being reviewed and enquiries being made with taxi companies. However, we’re still keen to hear from anyone who saw what happened and hasn’t yet spoken to police.

“If you are able to help I can be contacted directly via email (opens in new window)
