 Det Supt Lee Johnson said; “An incident room has been set up and I am appealing for anyone who saw what happened to come forward. As part of our enquiries we will also be studying cctv from the cameras both inside and outside the club itself.

“We are in the early stages of our enquiries and trying to build up a complete picture of what led to the initial disturbance and then the events which happened outside. I would urge anyone who can assist to contact police via 101

North East hit by a blanket of snow many major routes covered

Published

on

Motorists are bring urged to take extra care across the North East as many major routes have been covered.

Heavy snow fall and strong winds have left the A1, A19, A66 & A1M covered in snow.

While many major routes in towns and cities have also been covered leaving many roads difficult to navigate.

Gritting across many areas has failed as the snow has created air pockets allowing the snow to rest on top.

Snow began falling at 11pm last night and is expected to continue until 9am this morning.

A number of schools, colleges and Universities are expected to announce they could be closed for the day. Make sure you check ahead before traveling.

Tweet your snow pictures @PoliceHour or add them to the comments section on Police Hour Facebook page.
