Thames Valley Police has released CCTV images of people they would like to speak to in connection with a mass brawl which resulted in an air rifle being discharged outside the Royal Foresters Pub in London Road, Ascot.

The fight, which is said to have taken place between six-or-so men, happened at about 8.55pm on Tuesday, May 7.

A 29-year-old man and a 24-year-old man both sustained minor injuries consistent with being hit by air rifle pellets.

One of the men involved in the fight had an air rifle, which was discharged at least twice. The group then fled.

"I would like to speak to anyone who recognises anyone in the CCTV images to come forward.
