Witness tells court he found man in pool of blood

A FORMER pub landlord told a murder trial yesterday how he went outside his bar and found a man lying on the pavement with "blood coming out his nose, his mouth and everywhere else".

Clifford Brown, 29, who used to run the Clifton Arms pub in Broxburn, West Lothian, said somebody had run into his pub to tell him there had been a stabbing outside.

Mr Brown told the High Court in Livingston that he ran outside to find the man, Barry Fleming, 28, lying in a pool of blood.

The case continues.
