A spokesperson told the Southend Echo: ‘We a hugely disappointed with the incident.
‘It was not football related, it was an on-going feud between punters, nothing to do with football.
‘It was an on-going feud between two people in the place and if we had known that was the situation, we would have got one of them to have removed themselves.
‘But we were not aware. No one wants to see an incident like this, but it wasn’t anything to do with the football.
