Moment women pinned to floor and ‘dragged by hair’ by nightclub guards

A woman was shoved to the ground and "dragged by her hair" by a bouncer as chaos unfolded outside a nightclub.

The incident took place at Stealth nightclub on Goldsmith street in Nottingham when six doormen stopped a group of women from leaving the club on Saturday, November 6.

Niamh Watson, 21, said she was left with bruises all over her body when one of the guards came holding her against a metal gate.

In the video taken by a witness, the bouncers are seen slamming two women onto the ground and one of them appears to drag a woman by her hair.

She can be heard yelling "get off me" while her friend is pinned to the floor, lying unconscious with her hands on her head.

Niamh told NottinghamLive: "They started pushing us, and flooring us, throwing our phones. They were all six-foot massive men – we could not fight them back even if we wanted to.

"They started throwing us all around and I cannot remember all of it but I just knew I had to take photos of it."

She shared a picture of her injuries on her leg, adding: "I have bruises all over my body – legs, arms and stomach and my whole body hurts.

"He shoved my friend into a car, and then punched his girlfriend so hard it made her bleed."

A spokesperson for Stealth nightclub said: "We’re appalled by the video footage circulating regarding an incident outside our venues on Goldsmith Street.

"We understand how distressing they are and have taken the immediate decision to suspend the door staff involved while we carry out an investigation."

They added: "We will also be reviewing Professional Security, the company which is contracted to provide security staff, to assess its suitability to continue supplying door staff to our venues.

"This will include looking at their code of conduct and training."

Nottinghamshire Police said they were aware of the video and is proactively investigating.

Chief Inspector Amy English added: "While no incident has currently been reported to us, the force's city licensing team is making contact with the venue on the back of the circulation of this video.

"As a force, we work closely with licensed premises to reduce violence within the night-time economy, and to ensure Nottinghamshire remains a safe place to live, work and visit."
