  1. Umm what about the pub security camera footage. Or was the assault by pub security? If so whoops cameras weren’t on that 15 min during the assault.
    Sound familiar? How many times have we heard that?

  2. Oliver – If you are drunk and disorderly to the extent that you even raise the eyebrows of security employed to protect the rest of us enjoying a night out in moderation, then forgive me for saying you deserve it. Who says this was the case in this event anyway?
