A CCTV image has been released after a pub landlady was allegedly racially abused following a fight.

Two people were involved in the fight at the Strafford Arms pub in Potters Bar on Tuesday, December 17 at 11.30pm. Both were kicked out by staff members.

But the offenders later returned and forced entry by breaking the glass at the front of the door.

After being asked by the landlady of the pub to leave for a second time, it is alleged the offender(s) were racially abusive towards her.

When the offenders left the pub they kicked two separate vehicles, causing extensive damage.

Police believe they left on foot in the direction of Tesco.

Officers investigating the incident have released a CCTV image of a man they would like to identify as they believe he may be able to help with their enquiries.

PC Ross Paybody, who is investigating the incident, said: “The victim is understandably shaken up by this incident. This kind of behaviour is unacceptable, and simply will not be tolerated in Hertfordshire. Please be assured that we are carrying out extensive enquiries to insure that those responsible are identified and dealt with accordingly.

“If you recognise the man pictured, please get in contact with us, as it’s believed that he might have been in the area at the time and may be able to assist us with our investigation.

“If you were in the pub at or around the time of the incident, and believe you may have witnessed it, please get in contact. I’d also like to ask that anyone who may have witnessed anyone acting suspiciously or disorderly on Mutton Way in the early hours of Wednesday 18 December get in touch to report it.”
