AT least four people have been injured in a fight at a North Yorkshire racecourse.

One of those injured in the brawl at Thirsk Racecourse was taken to hospital with a broken eye socket, say North Yorkshire Police.

The assault, which involved a large group, saw more than four people attacked. 

A force spokesperson said: “It happened at around 6.45pm on Saturday, May 18 and a full investigation is under way.


“Three men, aged between 19 and 21, have been arrested on suspicion of GBH (grievous bodily harm) and released under investigation while enquiries continue.”

As part of their investigation, detectives are urging anyone with information who has not yet spoken to the police to get in touch; at the moment they are particularly interested in any video footage that may have captured the fight and can show what happened.
