A Bath hotelier and his wife were attacked by a drunken couple after refusing them a room in the early hours of the morning.
Robert and Sue Castleton, both 54, of the 14-bedroom Oldfields hotel, were woken shortly after midnight when the couple rang the doorbell. But after viewing them on a security camera, the Castletons told them through a speaker that there were no vacancies.
The couple moved off but returned moments later and a doorstep argument developed. The man pushed his way through the partially open door and punched and bit Mr Castleton, then hit Mrs Castleton in the face as she tried to intervene.
Castleton threw the man out and his wife rang the police but the couple had disappeared before they arrived. He was treated for minor injuries.
