But, posting on Facebook, the owners of the club said: 'To be clear. There has never been a stabbing in or at Tank in our four-and-a-half years of operating. 'And yes, we are open tonight and this weekend as usual. That is all.'

On the club's Facebook page, some clubbers claim police officers were at the venue and the club closed early on Sunday. Two men, aged 23 and 20, were arrested on suspicion of assault and later bailed pending further enquiries.
