POLICE are appealing for witnesses following a brawl between two groups of men in Dunbar.

A 27-year-old man sustained facial injuries and was taken to Edinburgh Royal Infirmary following the incident.

He was later arrested with public order offences and was due to appear at Edinburgh Sheriff Court today.

The altercation started around 5.30pm yesterday, beginning in Woodbush, continuing in Victoria Street and concluding in Church Street.

It involved two groups who had been in at least two cars, one of which was damaged.

Inspector Alan Hogarth said: “This is totally unacceptable behaviour and we are currently pursuing various lines of enquiry to find the others involved.

“Officers will be today patrolling the area in order to reassure the local community and we would urge any witnesses, or anyone with further information about this incident, to get in touch.”

Anyone with information is asked to contact Police Scotland on 101 or contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
