2:56 Geraint Hughes reflects on day two of Ben Stokes' trial

New CCTV footage has been released by police showing England cricketer Ben Stokes allegedly insulting, mocking and being aggressive towards two gay men just before the brawl outside a Bristol nightclub last September.

Cunningham said two men - Ryan Ali and Ryan Hale, who are standing trial accused of affray with Stokes - left Mbargo and walked off with O'Connor and Barry.

Stokes, of Durham, Ali and Hale, both of Bristol, deny affray.

Hale, who it is alleged was punched by Stokes in footage captured on a mobile phone and played to the jury on Tuesday, cycled to hospital later on Monday and was found to have sustained a 1.5 inch superficial laceration to his forehead.

The incident came after Szabo punched a resident who came outside amid the ruckus, according to The Post , which led Jones to act. Jones turned himself into police Thursday afternoon and was arraigned Thursday night at Queens County Criminal Court.

The jury heard he then identified Mr Stokes to police officers, who arrested the cricketer.

CCTV footage shows Ali and Hale leaving the nightclub at 2.23am before leaving with Barry and O'Connor, while Stokes and Hales remained. "He had a green T-shirt on".

"One of the guys responded - he said "shut up or I'll bottle you" in an aggressive tone to me".

He said he attempted to get between Stokes and Ryan Ali as Stokes appeared to be "the main aggressor" but, as he did so, Stokes punched Ali "with a clenched fist".

In statements provided to the police in the aftermath of the incident and read to the court on the third day of the trial - the first time since the incident that Stokes' version of events has been made public - he also claimed that two men (Kai Barry and William O'Connor), who he claims had been subjected to "nasty homophobic abuse" from Ali and Hale, thanked him for protecting them. I was concerned for myself and others. I told them I would not have a job to go back to in the morning.

Stokes told officers: "I said something like "leave it out, you shouldn't be taking the p*** because they're gay".

Images released today show the injuries sustained by Ali and Hale after allegedly being attacked by Stokes, hours after England beat the West Indies in a one-day global in the city.

Shortly afterwards, he knocked out two men in a street brawl witnessed by the two gay men, jurors were told.
