Drinkers in Truro bar 'deliberately gassed'
A potentially noxious gas has been released in a crowded bar in Cornwall.
Bunters Bar in Truro was evacuated at about 21:30 GMT on Friday when staff reported a strong smell like pepper spray.
Officers have been unable to confirm what the substance was although fire crews wearing breathing apparatus searched the building.
One customer tweeted: "Can't believe me and Liv just actually got gassed in bunters." No-one has been arrested.
Some people left the bar coughing but no serious injuries were reported and early indications suggest a pepper spray or similar was used, police said.
