A man suffered facial injuries when he was hit by a bottle inside a Bedford nightclub.

The victim was knocked to the ground by the bottle which had been thrown by a reveller in the Vibe nightclub on Thursday, April 16, at around 2am. Police are appealing for information from club goers in a bid to track down the person responsible.

The incident happened as the man stood with friends on the top dance floor close to the stairs.

Det Con Amanda Durrant said: “This was a busy night club and someone must have seen who threw the bottle or is aware who this person is.

“The victim sustained a deep cut to his cheek which was just below his eye, so it is lucky he wasn’t more seriously injured.”
