The men were taken to Addenbrooke's Hospital and their injuries were described as serious but not life-threatening.

On Friday, staff at the Burwell pub posted on Facebook to wish the men a 'swift recovery' and to thank employees for their 'calm and decisive actions' and customers for their 'assistance and support' to help the men.

"You all saved lives last night," the post added.

Jones was charged with three counts of attempted murder. The case has been adjourned to Cambridge Crown Court on January 17.
