Wirral man arrested following disturbance at a Mathew Street bar

Merseyside Police has issued an appeal for information following a disturbance at a bar in Liverpool on Saturday 24 June.

Officers were called to Legends Bar on Mathew Street at around 7.50pm to reports of a disturbance which had resulted in a 29 -year-old man suffering a broken leg. He remains in hospital.

A second man, aged 39, suffered an injury to the buttock area. Enquiries have established it was not a stab injury. He has been released from hospital.

A 25-year-old man from Belfast and a 39-year-old man from Wirral were both arrested on suspicion of affray and have been released on conditional police bail pending further enquiries.

A 29-year-old man remains under arrest on suspicion of public order offences.

An investigation into the incident remains ongoing.

Detective Inspector Katie Coote said, “I would ask anyone who was in the area of Mathew Street on Saturday night who saw anything or captured anything significant on their mobile phone to contact us.

“We simply will not tolerate such violence on our streets. Liverpool is one of the safest cities in the UK – it has been awarded Purple flag status for over a decade and you are far more likely to enjoy a safe and enjoyable night out than witness or experience appalling incidents such as this.

“If you have any information, please come forward and help keep our streets safe.”
