A number of villagers reported that a fight had occurred. The man is currently in intensive care.

One woman, who did not want to be named, said: “I heard there were quite a few police there this morning and I heard there was a fight. I heard someone is seriously ill in the hospital. It’s quite scary because we live in the marketplace. You don’t expect these things to happen where you live.

A woman, who lives near the pub, said: “I took the dogs out at around 11.30am and heard an ambulance. Usually the crowd leaves and shouts but I didn’t hear anything like I usually do it at night. It’s a beautiful area, it’s really cool. It’s strange that something happened but I hope everything is fine. I feel bad for anyone.

Another local woman said an assault happened outside the Golden Lion pub. She added: “The outside (of the pub) was cordoned off this morning by the police. I don’t know when it was taken down, but the pub is open now.”
