Detectives from Lambeth are appealing for witnesses and have released CCTV footage after a man was assaulted inside a bar on Clapham High Street in November 2017.

Police and London Ambulance Service (LAS) were called at 02:10hrs on Thursday, 23 November to reports of a serious assault at a bar on Clapham High Street, SW4.
