A bride and groom spent their first night as a married couple in jail after being arrested at a Manchester hotel following a brawl.

The newlyweds were still in their wedding outfits when they were arrested by police after a row in the reception at the plush Hilton Hotel in Deansgate.

The couple reportedly got into a row with hotel staff as they tried to check in.

Staff had to call for extra help from security guards, and the 25-year-old groom allegedly then attacked a security guard, cutting his face in the fight, reports the Mirror.

The bride, who was still wearing her wedding dress, was accused of shouting racist abuse at the guards, who were Asian.

The groom was arrested on suspicion of assault while his wife was held on suspicion of a racially aggravated public order offence.

They were taken to the local police station, where they spent the night in separate cells.

Nick Adderley, Chief Superintendent of Greater Manchester Police's North Division said his officers made the right decision.

Speaking to the Manchester Evening News, he said: "Police officers were asked attend and we did so.

"We then obviously had to pain over the decision whether it was right thing to do to arrest.

"But it absolutely was and I support the officers who made that decision.

"We can't have a situation where, regardless of what ceremony they have been to, people are being allegedly assaulted and racially abused."
