A CHRISTMAS reveller was taken to hospital after twice being stabbed in the back at a town centre pub.

The man, in his 30s, was drinking in The Bull, in Camps Road, Haverhill, when he was involved in an altercation. After an exchange of words with a customer, the man was stabbed in the back.

He was taken to Addenbrooke's Hospital, Cambridge, where his injuries were said to be "not serious". He was released from hospital and was last night believed to be recovering at home.
