A MAN viciously attacked outside a WGC pub was “out cold for up to 10 minutes”, an eyewitness has said.

An eyewitness told the Welwyn Hatfield Times that police swarmed the area minutes after the seemingly “unprovoked” attack just before midnight.
He said: “The victim was out cold for up to 10 minutes.
