Woman told to stay out of Birmingham ‘after bouncer was racially abused’

A woman arrested in connection with a video in which a pub doorman was racially abused has been bailed but told not to enter Birmingham.

Footage of the incident in which the bouncer was spat at and called racial slurs went viral, sparking a police investigation.

The suspect, 24, from Worcester, was originally detained on Tuesday afternoon after she attended a police station at West Midlands Police’s request.

It’s alleged she was the woman who used racist language outside The Figure Of Eight in Broad Street, Birmingham, at some time between 10pm and 11.30pm on Saturday.

She has now been released on bail with conditions, including not to enter Birmingham, while police gather witness evidence before presenting a file to the CPS.

The footage has been viewed more than two million times since it was posted by the bouncer Jason Price.

Mr Price’s Instagram post that accompanied the clip said: ‘I haven’t been doing security for years like some, but in the short time I’ve been doing it I’ve seen and been through pretty much anything there is to see and go through whilst doing the job.

‘This however, is something I, or anyone who looks like me shouldn’t have to go through.

‘There was a time I’d go through things like this and brush it under the carpet but them times are over.’
