“I’ve never seen him in there before. It was awful,” he said. Police said inquiries into the attack are ongoing, and urged for anyone with information to get in touch.

Witnesses are being asked to contact police on the non-emergency 101 line and ask for extension 69191, or call Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.

Nobody from Mecca Bingo was available when the Echo tried to contact them.
