Two incidents which left one man with a fractured skull and another needing stitches are being investigated by police.
Avon and Somerset Constabulary are appealing for witnesses after officers were called to reports of an altercation involving a large group of people on Marine Drive, in Burnham-on-Sea at approximately 3.30am on July 14.
When they arrived at the scene several of the group ran off.
Soon after, they attended another disturbance in the car park of the nearby Lighthouse Inn.
Two men needed hospital treatment for injuries sustained during the incidents.
