“We were unable to make any arrests,” PC Poyser told the panel. “If we had made any arrests that night those prisoners would have gone outside the county.
“That would have reduced my staffing level there by two. We would have had to travel to Derbyshire or Yorkshire.”
Moreover the brawl sounds like a dangerous fight.
“PC Major, another officer on duty on April 12,..(said) that up to 15 men were involved in the brawl.
“At least ten males rushed out the club carrying bottles of Moet,” he said. These bottles were then smashed and used to attack people. It was a bit Wild West.””
