TWO men have been injured after an assault near a Yateley pub involving a group of up to ten people.

Police are investigating the incident, which took place in Reading Road, near the Dog and Partridge pub, between 8.30pm and 8.45pm.

The victims, who are both in their 20s, were said to be walking from Manor Park Drive towards the village green in Yateley.
