The violence prompted the club to publish a statement the day after the event.

It read: "We are gutted and upset after last nights events.

"We would personally like to apologise to everyone at the event, unfortunately some things are out of our control and these people ruined what was a great show.

"We have no words, we can only apologise and hope to make it up to everyone."

A spokesman said: "A number of inquiries have been carried out and now police are appealing to identify the men in the images who may hold important information.

"If you recognise the men or have information which may assist the investigation call 01843 222289 quoting reference 46/172828/19.
