Detectives investigating an incident outside a nightclub involving cricketer Ben Stokes have passed a file to the Crown Prosecution Service for a decision on charging.

The 26-year-old Durham all-rounder - who is suspended from playing for England by the ECB - is currently in New Zealand after flying to Christchurch to see his extended family.

Avon and Somerset Police said:

We are now in a position to provide an update on our investigation into a disorder in Bristol which happened during the early hours of Monday September 25.

A 27-year-old man suffered a fractured eye socket in the incident on Queens Road, Clifton.
