A larger police mirror has been launched after two men were stabbed under a ‘large-scale rammy’ outside a Scottish hotel.

Police were called to the parking lot of the Rosslea Hotel in Rhu, Argyll and Bute around 10pm on Saturday after the violent scenes broke out.

A source claims that two men were injured with a blade weapon during the incident, leaving spectators terrified and some in tears.

An eyewitness told the Daily Record that staff were forced to lock the hotel doors in an attempt to keep the fighting crowd outside.

They said, “It was like a scene out of Shameless.

“There were about 40 people fighting in the parking lot, and it was really ugly. It was the biggest rammy I’ve ever seen.

“The staff was forced to lock the doors to keep everyone inside safe and people fighting out.

“There was a really sad event going on at the hotel at the time before this just broke out and two people were stabbed.”

It is understood that friends and family of the tragic Helensburgh teenager Jamie Haughie were present at the hotel for a memorial event when the fight broke out.

The 17-year-old, who has been described as the “nicest little guy”, died suddenly asleep earlier this month, leaving his loved ones crushed by his death.

A 27-year-old man was taken to Queen Elizabeth University Hospital for treatment, while a 42-year-old was taken to Royal Alexandra Hospital.
