Witnesses to a “full-blown” fight inside a Lancaster nightclub are being asked to contact police.

The altercation involved a group of white men and a group of Asian men who were with some female relatives at The Lounge on Penny Street at around 3.20am on January 19.

PC Mark Finch, of Lancaster Police, said: “This was an unpleasant incident that started over a minor issue that escalated into a full-blown fight near to the dancefloor of a busy nightclub.

“This would have been alarming for the customers inside the nightclub at the time and was a difficult situation for the staff to deal with.

“The details of the Asian family are known, so I urge anybody with details of the group of white males or any other information that may be of help to come forward.

“We will treat all information with sensitivity and hope that this appeal helps to refresh the memory of any members of the public who may have witnessed the incident.”

Anyone with any information about the incident is asked to call police on 101 quoting log number LC-20140119-0265 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
