"At around 2.30am officers attended a disturbance at a licensed premises on Bold Street.

"Six men were arrested on suspicion of section 20 assault on Lord Street.

"The men, four aged 33, 31, 29 and 19, who all come from the Huyton area, a 28-year-old man from Formby and an 18-year-old man from Litherland remain in police custody.

"A 34-year-old man from Southport was taken to hospital with facial injuries which are not believed to be life threatening."

The disturbance happened outside the Lounge Inn - a modern restaurant that converts into a late night club venue with live music and DJs - in the seaside town less than 10 miles north of Gerrard's home in Formby in Merseyside.
