Four men have been charged in relation to an incident at the Fosse Hotel Pub in Newcastle last year.

Around 4.20pm on Thursday, December 8, a group of 12 masked men in a white van attacked a man who was standing outside of the Fosse Hotel pub on the Fossway.

They were armed with bats, metal bars, hatchets, knives and ammonia and left the victim hospitalised with a fractured skull and stab wounds.

A female bystander was also injured by being squirted with ammonia and needed hospital treatment.

Enquiries into the incident have been ongoing since the incident and two men were charged in connection with it at the end of last year.

Now police charged a further four people - aged 26, 29, 31 and 33 - in connection with the incident.

The 26-year-old appeared before Bedlington Magistrates Court on Wednesday, March 1, and was remanded in custody to appear before crown court on March 30.

The other three men have been released on abil to appear before Newcastle Magistrates Court on April 7.
