A CCTV image has been released in connection to a giant pub brawl reported in Milton Keynes last month.

The large scale fight left one man with a broken jaw and two female workers at the Milton Keynes pub with injuries which didn't require treatment.

In a re-appeal for witnesses to come forward Thames Valley Police have released a photo of a man they believe could have crucial information on the assault.

Police officers want to speak to this man

The major incident took place on Tuesday 22 June at around 11.45pm at the Captain Ridley's Shooting Party Pub on Queensway.

One fight broke out at the pub, which then led to all chaos breaking loose. It was glasses being thrown across the pub which led to staff members suffering injuries.

Detective Constable Leanne Shepherd of Milton Keynes CID, said: “I am releasing this CCTV image as I believe that the person pictured may have vital information about this incident. As such I’d like to identify and speak to him.
