A man has been arrested on suspicion of assault after a teenager was attacked in a Hartlepool bar.

An 18-year-old suffered serious facial injuries in the incident, which took place in Reflections Bar at about 3am on Saturday.

He was treated at the University Hospital of North Tees, in Stockton, before being discharged.

A 27-year-old man has been bailed while further inquiries take place after being arrested on suspicion of assault.
