Police were called to Nuneaton town centre from all over north Warwickshire last night as a mass brawl broke out.

A police officer was kicked in the head and body as the ruckus got out of hand.

A large crowd gathered outside the Pen and Wig pub in Church Street at 11pm as a number of scuffles broke out.

Five people were eventually arrested and the crowd was dispersed after an hour.

A 27-year-old Nuneaton man and 20-year-old from Banks Hill were arrested on suspicion of being drunk and disorderly and committing minor public order offences.

A 22-year-old Nuneaton man and a man aged 20 from Galley Common were charged in connection with the assault on PC Burgess.
