Scottish rockers Primal Scream were forced to halt their latest gig in the north after a steward broke his ankle breaking up a fight between fans.
The four piece-band were performing at the Ironworks in Inverness to a packed crowd when the staff member was hurt and they had to temporarily down their instruments.
Eye-witnesses have explained how they saw the guard desperately trying to get over a barrier to control a fight which took place at around 11.10pm on Friday.
Police and paramedics confirmed that they were called to the scene following reports of a disturbance at the popular city centre music venue.
A police spokesman said: “Police were called to a music venue in Academy Street Inverness around 11.10pm on Friday, following a report that a steward has broken his leg during a disturbance.”
As officers worked to defuse the situation and establish the circumstances surrounding it, the band left the stage before resuming to conclude the highly anticipated set which included their smash hit Movin’ On Up.
The steward was treated at the scene by paramedics before being taken to Raigmore Hospital for treatment to an ankle injury.
The police spokesman added: “Following inquiries, it was established that his injuries were not as a result of a crime.
“Advice assistance has been give and a man was taken to local hospital for treatment to an ankle injury.”
