Appeal for witnesses after Good Friday fight on Millennium Bridge

Lancaster are appealing for witnesses to come forward following a fight on Millennium Bridge in Lancaster on Good Friday. (22nd April 2011)

At 2.30pm police received reports of up to six men fighting on the bridge behind Sainsbury’s in Lancaster city centre.

An 18-year-old man from Padiham and a 20-year-old man from Lancaster have both been arrested on suspicion of affray and are on police bail until 19 May, whilst an investigation continues.

“There would have been hundreds of people in and around Lancaster town centre on Good Friday and I am confident that many people would have witnessed some form of fight or altercation on Millennium Bridge and the adjacent cycle track," says PC Mark Ryan from Lancaster Police.

“An investigation is underway and I would be very keen to speak with anybody that saw anything to contact me as they could have vital information.”

• Anyone with any information should contact PC3802 Mark Ryan on 01524 63333 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
