A man in his 70s is in critical condition after a fight broke out in a Camden pub just before closing time.

The 72-year-old remains in hospital with serious head injuries after the fight last night outside the North Star pub in Finchley Road, Swiss Cottage.

A second man in his 40s, believed to be the pub landlord, was also taken to hospital for treatment for non-life threatening injuries.

No arrests have been made.

Finchley Road southbound is down to one lane and part of the pavement is closed.

"At this early stage officers believe that an altercation may have taken place inside the pub and continued on the street outside the venue."
