Five men have been jailed for a violent attack on a group of men in Huntingdon.
It happened outside Cromwell’s public house in Huntingdon High Street in March, after a group of ten to 12 men, some armed with fence posts and metal poles got into a fight.
Ionatan Lupu, Remus Grecu, Cosmin Palade, Daniel Bordeianu, and Alexandru Petrescu, all of Stukeley Road in Huntingdon, were arrested in connection with the disorder.
Two of the victims were taken to hospital following their injuries.
All five men pleaded guilty to violent disorder and were sentenced to six and a half years in prison between them.
This was a vicious attack during a busy Friday night in Huntingdon town centre. We want the night time economy in Cambridgeshire to be enjoyable and safe for all – behaviour of this nature is just not acceptable.

A police watchdog has found delays by the child protection agency CEOP meant that known paedophiles were able to carry on abusing children.
Amongst them were Cambridge paedophile doctor Myles Bradbury and Essex deputy headteacher Martin Goldberg.
Their names were both on a list provided to CEOP by Canadian police after they attempted to buy child pornography.
The Independent Police Complaints Commission said the information provided to CEOP was 'poorly handled' and the delay into passing it onto local police forces led to more children being abused.
Bradbury, a paediatric consultant at Addenbrooke's hospital was jailed for 22 years in December 2014 for the abuse of 18 vulnerable patients in his care.
Goldberg, who worked at Thorpe Hall School in Southend, had used a hidden camera to take hundreds of images of children as young as nine.

Bedfordshire Police have issued a warning saying it will not tolerate threatening behaviour, after receiving numerous reports of people dressed as clowns trying to intimidate people.
In the last 24 hours, the force has received more complaints about people dressed up as clowns.
They say it's wasting valuable resources and it's unacceptable to act in this manner.
We understand that in the lead up to Halloween, people may wish to dress up and enjoy themselves.
However, there is a difference between this and acting in an unacceptable and threatening manner towards people.
Additionally, this type of behaviour is also tying up valuable police resources, which could impact on calls to life-and-death emergencies.
