Teen Suffers Head Injury After 20 Person Brawl At Wetherspoon

A teenager has been left with a head injury following a huge fight over queue jumping outside a JD Wetherspoon pub in Swindon. You can see part of what happened here:

The 18-year-old was injured when a fight broke out over the fence of the Dockle Farmhouse beer garden, in Wiltshire, between about 20 men.

In footage taken at the incident, the fight appears to take place between some customers in the pub and some who are outside the fence of the premises. It spills out on to the road.

Police arrived at the scene at about 7.20pm. Nobody was arrested but the man in question received treatment at the Great Western Hospital after suffering a head injury.
