Police have now arrested three people - two from Westbury and one from Melksham - as part of their investigation into the brawl between anti-hunt protesters and hunt supporters at Lacock last week.

The police say enquiries into the fracas outside the Red Lion pub at the meet of the Avon Vale Hunt are progressing and they are appealing for anyone with video footage to contact them.

Last week a police spokesman said: “Following the incident, video footage of disorder was posted on social media and extensive enquiries to identify those involved have been ongoing.

"A man in his 30s from Westbury was arrested on suspicion of affray and taken to Melksham custody for questioning. He has since been released under investigation while enquiries continue.”

Today a spokesman said: “Currently, three people have been arrested in connection with the incident. Two are from Westbury and one is from Melksham, they have all been arrested on suspicion of affray.”

The spokesman added: “We have received a number of calls from members of the public with information in relation to the incident.

“We’d urge anyone who was present who may have information which could help our enquiries to get in touch, as well as anyone who may have their own footage of the incident. Please call 101 and quote log number 96 of December 27.”
