Disorder at the Woodpecker in Mackworth: man in a critical condition as police appeal for witnesses

Posted on 16th September 2018

A man is in a critical condition in hospital following events in and around the Woodpecker pub in Mackworth in the early hours of Saturday morning.

We are appealing for witnesses to the disorder, particularly if they have video footage, to come forward.

At around 1am on Saturday, September 15, a brawl that started inside the Woodford Road venue spilled outside.

An incident we believe to be linked to that disorder occurred at a nearby address on Ryegate Drive shortly afterwards.

A 28-year-old man was then admitted to hospital with serious head injuries, where he remains in a critical condition.

A 45-year-old man and an 18-year-old man have been arrested.
