Police launch a fresh appeal for two men that they believe to be key witnesses to the incident involving Ben Stokes last month.

Avon and Somerset Police have launched a fresh appeal for two men that they believe are key witnesses to the nightclub fracas involving Ben Stokes last month.

The England vice-captain was arrested following a night out in Bristol where he was filmed apparently punching two men outside the Mbargo club.

While Stokes was subsequently released without charge, the investigation remains ongoing and police are keen to track down the two witnesses.

"One of the men is described as white, of slim build, 5ft 9in tall and aged in his early 20s. He had short dark brown hair, was clean shaven and wore a white T-shirt with a sleeveless jumper, jeans and trainers," they said in a statement.

"The second man is also white, 5ft 9in tall and aged in his early 20s but is of a slightly larger build. He had short light brown hair, was also clean shaven and wore a long-sleeved round neck T-shirt, dark/black skinny jeans and trainers."

Stokes's agent has said that the player will give a full explanation for his actions "when the time is right" after the investigation has concluded.
