The men, who are described as Asian, were drinking at the Wombourne Pool Bar at around 10.45pm on Saturday.

One of the men was approached and warned to leave by a customer before another man spat beer over one of them a short time later.

The three men are believed to have been training at a local cricket club.

Sergeant Kelly Wareing, of Staffordshire Police, said: "We’d urge these men to come forward, as well as anyone else who witnessed this incident.

"We are investigating and have already spoken to a local man in connection with this incident."

Anyone with information is urged to contact Staffordshire Police on 101 or via social media, referring to incident 741 of July 14.
