Two men have been charged with violent disorder at a Blackpool hotel.
Officers were called at around 11.15pm on July 5th to a hotel on Queens Promenade, Blackpool, to reports of a public order incident.
When they arrived they discovered that a group of approximately seven men, in possession of weapons including machetes, had attacked another group of men before making off from the area. Three people were taken to hospital for treatment but have since been discharged.
Following consultation with the Crown Prosecution Service, Andrew Price, 26, of Leaway, Ince, Wigan, and Francis Michael Dinnigan, 25, of Leighton Street, Preston, were charged with violent disorder and were due to appear at Preston Magistrates Court today.
Patrick Gavin, 26, of Leighton Street, Preston, has previously been charged with the same offence.
