A man was stabbed after trouble flared at a city centre nightspot in Wolverhampton.

Police cordoned off Skinner Street in the early hours of Sunday morning after a huge fight occurred, which is believed to have happened at Fixxion Nightclub.

West Midlands Police described the fight as ‘large scale disorder’.

A man, aged in his 30s, suffered a stab wound to his torso during the incident, which happened at around 3am.

His injuries are not believed to be serious but he was taken to hospital as a precaution.

Police officers tweeted footage showing Skinner Street closed off as an investigation was launched.

The road was closed at the School Street junction.

Nearby Gorgeous Nightclub posted on its Facebook page saying the incident had happened at another venue.

The statement said: “Due to an apparent incident at a nearby venue management at Gorgeous took the decision to stop entry earlier than normal.

“The safety of customers is our highest priority.

“We are obviously as disappointed as you that our night was spoiled, but we hope you understand.”

Anyone with information is asked to call police on 101 quoting 20WV/71163N19.
