Detectives investigating an alleged affray and criminal damage incident in Poole are appealing for witnesses or anyone with information to come forward.

Dorset Police received a report at around 6pm on Friday 4 March 2022 of a fight in the car park of Miller & Carter Steakhouse in Wallisdown Road. It was reported that some of those involved were in possession of an axe and a hammer.

It is alleged that a vehicle that was parked nearby had its windows, windscreen and wingmirrors smashed.
