Live updates as concern voiced over large police cordon at Nottingham pub

A police cordon has been set up around a pub in Nottingham.

There is a heavy police presence at the Duke of St Albans pub in Bewcastle Road, Top Valley, on Sunday, October 3.

The entire pub has been cordoned off by police – there is a welfare unit and three police cars at the scene.

Plastic glasses and litter are also scattered along the floor near the pub.

Eyewitnesses reported the heavy police presence there to Nottinghamshire Live and a reporter is on their way to the scene.

Mark Jackson, 42, who has lived near the pub for the past 12 years, said: “I got woke up by it all last night. I heard all the police cars and so I came outside just as a load of kids were setting off fireworks over the other side of the roundabout, by the bus stop.”

A spokesperson for Nottinghamshire Police confirmed they were called to reports of a serious assault.
