    Video footage has emerged that allegedly shows England's Ben Stokes in a violent brawl outside a nightclub.

The 26-year-old was arrested on suspicion of causing actual bodily harm after an incident in Bristol on Monday.

He was detained overnight and released under investigation while inquiries continue, police said.

The footage, obtained by The Sun, shows a man who very closely resembles Stokes repeatedly swinging punches towards two men, who are knocked to the ground.

In the video, which the newspaper has handed to police, men can be heard saying: "That's enough Stokesy."

In a statement on Wednesday, the England and Wales Cricket Board said: "We have seen this footage for the first time tonight - when posted by The Sun.

"There is an ongoing police investigation, which will look at all available evidence, and we do have to respect that process."

The clip, which is just under a minute long, begins with one of the men who is eventually knocked to the floor appearing to attempt to strike somebody with a bottle.

Stokes, England's Test vice-captain, was arrested at Bristol's Mbargo club after an incident at about 02:35 BST which left another man needing hospital treatment for facial injuries.

Hours earlier, England had beaten West Indies by 124 runs in their third one-day international in Bristol, with Stokes scoring 73.

The all-rounder was not available for Wednesday's fourth ODI, in which England completed a series victory over West Indies.

Team-mate Alex Hales, who was with Stokes at the Mbargo club, also missed the match and returned to Bristol to help police. (BBC)
