A groom from St Albans spent his stag do in a Spanish jail after a fight on a Majorca beach, but still managed to make the wedding.

Connor Lorimer, who runs two building firms in the city, was forced to pay £850 to leave custody on bail so he could tie the knot in Majorca.

The 29-year-old and seven friends faced the Jutjat de Guàrdia court just 48 hours before the ceremony was due to begin, after a fight at the Balneario Illetas beach club in Cavalia on Wednesday, May 29, left a number of waiters and two police officers injured.

Best man Joe Lafbery, 29, his 22-year-old brother Finlay, Samuel Yeomans, 29, John Squires, 29, George Cook, 30, and Callum Dudrenec, 28 were also arrested, and all eight men could have to return to Majorca for a criminal trial if prosecutors decide to charge them.

"The court granted bail for eight men who were detained under a bond for possible civil damage caused. No date was set for them to return. This is a criminal case," said a spokesperson for the Jutjat de Guàrdia court.

A waiter injured in the fight told the MailOnline that the group became aggressive when staff begged them to stop throwing rubbish into the sea, describing the brawl as 'like a battle' and saying he had 'never seen a situation like that' in his 25 years working in Costa del Sol restaurants.

The incident in Majorca comes amid ongoing anti-tourist protests on the island. Last Saturday, around 15,000 people took to the streets of Palma to protest against over tourism.
