Police are still appealing for witnesses of this incident and another incident earlier in the night.

It happened in the car park of the Dominie Cross pub, in Grove Street, at around 11:25pm on Friday, January 24.

Officers were called to reports of a disturbance involving up to eight men and women.

Detective Inspector Justine Wilson, who is leading the investigation, has appealed to local people for information.

DI Wilson said: "Retford is a fantastic town with a close-knit community, and I would like to appeal directly to that community to come forward.

"Jordan's family deserves answers, so please come and talk to us.

"We are making progress in the investigation, but we have unanswered questions.

"I know there are people out there who saw what happened and can answer those questions for us, so I would like to appeal to you directly - please do the right thing, not just for us but for Jordan's family.

"Anyone who has any information can call Nottinghamshire Police on 101 or contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.

"We have also opened an online portal which the public can use to give us information. This can be done anonymously and is not traceable by the police."

Anyone who witnessed either incident, or believes they may have captured them on dashcam or mobile phone footage, is asked to call Nottinghamshire Police on 101.

You should quote incident number: 78 of January, 25, 2020.
