Bottles were thrown by a group of brawling men embroiled in a fight in the middle of St Albans city centre.

The incident on French Row and High Street started shortly before 1am on Monday July 12.

The group broke up and ran off when police arrived but a number of men involved were detained by officers.

Det Con Paige Carter said: “The incident occurred the same night as the Euro 2020 football final.

“We believe several people who had been in The Snug, or stood outside, will have witnessed it or even tried to separate those involved.
