Last August, South Yorkshire Police said officers were deployed to Carver Street in the early hours following an altercation in or around Crystal Bar.

A man in his 20s was stabbed during the violence which flared.

That same month two arrests were made after a mass brawl outside Popworld.

Footage of the fight showed a large group of men starting to fight outside the nightclub, kicking and punching one another.

Passers by tried to intervene to break up the fight, while other men appeared to join in with the fracas.

Officers attended and four men were taken to hospital.

Two men were rushed to hospital with life-threatening injuries, and a further four were left with superficial stab or slash wounds following the violent incident at the bar on Carver Street.

All six men were from the Birmingham area and South Yorkshire Police said at the time that the incident was believed to have been 'gang-related'.

Nobody has ever been charged over the knife attack.

In May 2014, University of Bradford student Anowar Tagabo, 25, from Sudan, died after suffering a head injury after being attacked outside Viper Rooms, while out with friends.

Because of how busy Carver Street traditionally is at weekends, there is normally a heavy police presence there.
