Police are searching for a make-up wearing man who punched another man outside the Amble Inn pub in Harpenden last month.

A driver was at a set of Station Road traffic lights on September 29 when the man, and his friend who was wearing a pink wig, shouted abuse at him and his girlfriend.

The 19-year-old victim then stopped his car and got into an altercation with the pair and was punched in the jaw.

The man police are looking for is thought to be white, with short brown hair, and aged between 24 to 28.

He was wearing a grey tracksuit and make-up and was also with a woman, as well as his friend in a pink wig.
