Police have launched an investigation after a window was smashed at a popular pub in St Albans.

Between 10.45pm and 10.55pm on Thursday, February 29, a window was damaged at The Horn in Victoria Street.

In a statement on Facebook, the pub described the incident as a "mindless act of vandalism", saying: "Someone that came to The Horn to support a band decided that it would be funny to deliberately headbutt and smash one of the windows in the front patio area.

"This mindless act of vandalism could not only have caused themselves serious injuries but also people sitting on the opposite side of the window."
