A security staff worker at the 1886 club in Douglas has been arrested and bailed pending further enquires after a disturbance outside the venue at just after midnight last night.

Police say they have spoken to him and he's expected to make a full recovery.

Witnesses are asked to come forward and give formal statements.

There's also a further appeal to the public not to comment on the incident on social media as it could have a detrimental effect on the investigation and any potential future prosecution.
