The pair in the car called police after the incident at about 8.30pm. It is not clear what sparked the clash but there have been several protests at the site since the pub was destroyed in an arson attack before being demolished.

Paul Turner, who runs a Facebook group about the pub, which has tens of thousands of members, said in a statement the issues were linked to “alcohol fuelled behaviour”.

Anyone with information about what happened is being urged to contact police.

Three people have been arrested on suspicion of arson following the fire at the Crooked House.
