All of the victims suffered stab or slash wounds when violence flared and the brawl led to the temporary closure of the venue after police chiefs ordered an improvement in security systems.

Door staff now use search wands and ID scanners, and drinks have to be served in plastic glasses after midnight.

All of the victims were from Birmingham and detectives believe the incident may have been gang related.

Anyone with information should call South Yorkshire Police on 101.
