    A man brought a brawl to a brutal end after flooring an aggressive reveller with a pool cue.

    The savage fight broke out in a pub in South Shields in South Tyneside on the evening of December 30, 2022, but ended after one man toppled the instigator in one swoop.

    Viral footage of the incident shows a man in a black hat, a grey jacket and black shorts gesturing aggressively with his hands and shouting before grabbing a ball from a pool table and appearing to pelt another pubgoer.

    He could then be seen squaring up to a bloke in a white T-shirt and throwing a punch in his direction but missing, before another man in a black T-shirt jabs him with the cue and sends him falling to the floor.

    Northumbria Police are reviewing the footage following the incident but said no injuries were reported to authorities.

    A spokesperson for the force said: "On the evening of December 30th 2022, we were alerted to an altercation taking place within a pub on Prince Edward Road, South Shields.

    "Officer attended the premises but those involved had already left and no reports outlining any injuries were made to police.

    "CCTV of the incident is being reviewed by officers and enquiries are ongoing."

    The video garnered plenty of attention on social media, with Twitter users congratulating the man with the cue for landing the "perfect shot".

    "Good mate who had the cue. Doesn’t want to get involved but backing his boy," one wrote.

    Another added: "The composure of the lad in the black t shirt, biding his time for the perfect shot. That’s the difference between great pool players and us mediocre folk."

    Meanwhile a third chimed in: "Soon as that ball is thrown man adjusts his grip on cue."

    It is thought the incident took place at the Derby Pub, but this has not been confirmed by police.
