Three off-duty police officers were forced to break up a fight between two men in Canterbury city centre last night.
The officers were on a ghost tour when the attack took place outside the Slatters Hotel in St Margaret's Street at about 8.30pm.
They restrained both men until police arrived on the scene before they continued the tour along the city's spooky haunts.
Tour leader John Hippisley says he dialled 999 after witnessing the attack which started when a man being chased ran past the party.
He said: "A guy came running past us at speed towards the Three Tuns pub another guy gave chase and caught up to him at Slatters Hotel where he punched him heavily.
