A security guard was assaulted after reports of a fight breaking out at Dudley Town Hall.

Dudley Town Hall

Police were called to Dudley Town Hall, off St James's Road, at around 9.10pm on Friday after reports of an assault during a performance by comedian Jimeoin.

Two men were asked to leave the performance, before assaulting a security guard, West Midlands Police say.

A window was also smashed during the incident.

Jimeoin was performing at Dudley Town Hall as part of his Ramble On! tour.

West Midlands Police are now investigating the incident and are trying to trace the two men involved.

One audience member said: "Towards the end of the second part of his set, a fist fight broke out in the front quarter of the audience. It was sometime after 9pm.

"There was a fist fight, it was a big disturbance while the show was going on – Jimeoin had to stop and was just observing what was going on. The security staff got involved.

"We left at that point but we did see a police car with lights flashing heading in the town hall's direction."
