Now, the wine bar has announced on Facebook that the two injured people are believed to have been released from hospital.

It said: “Good morning all, first things first we understand that everyone involved in the incident last Thursday has now been released from hospital and are on the mend which is amazing news and our thoughts continue to be with all involved.

“Once again we would like to extend our thanks to all customers, friends, family and local businesses that have offered support and sent messages to us. We both feel very humble.

“Of course The Wine Bar is still open and we hope to see you all there over the festive period.

“Wishing everyone a very happy Christmas and see you soon,

“Much love Alex and Stephen.”
