A nightclub has sacked two bouncers after footage circulated online showed a woman being hurled to the floor in an angry late-night bust-up.
The clip taken outside Mangos bar in Falmouth, Cornwall, captures a teenager being shoved and placed into a headlock during a brawl with security guards.
One of the girls in the footage recalled the incident, claiming the brawl began when they attempted to ‘calm down’ one of their male friends.
The video accumulated over 1,400 shares after being posted to social media on May 30, with some Facebook users criticising the bouncers’ actions.
Mangos has since apologised for the incident and told its security partner that it does not want the two bouncers working for the bar again.

Footage shows one of the girls being pushed by a security guard and losing her balance as she stumbles backwards.
She springs forward before a second bouncer holds her in a headlock and wrestles her to the ground while surrounded by concerned onlookers.
The first security guard can then be seen knocking over another girl, who attempts to come to the aid of her friend and appears to hit the second bouncer on the back.
One of the teenagers, who wishes to remain anonymous, told Cornwall Live: ‘There was a fight and me and my friend went over to calm down one of our boy mates and try to get him out of the situation because we obviously didn’t want him fighting.
‘The security guards then come over telling us to leave I stepped back onto one of the security guards by accident because he was quite close behind me.’
She added: ‘The other guy shoved my friend over so hard after my friend pushed the other guy off me, which could have been seriously dangerous if my friend didn’t catch her.’
Mangos has now asked its security partner to provide a female member of door staff for ‘as many nights as possible’.
In a statement, the bar said: ‘Prior to the incident, the door staff at Mangos had dealt with numerous incidents of fighting and antisocial behaviour in Church Street, none of which involved customers of Mangos or incidents within Mangos.

‘Mangos would like to sincerely apologise for this incident, we cannot and will not condone the actions of two door staff in the footage and we have informed our Security partner that we do not want them working at Mangos again.
‘We have also asked our Security partner to provide a female member of door staff for as many nights as possible, due to current staff shortages this cannot be guaranteed but as soon as we can we will implement this policy.
‘We have also downloaded all footage from our CCTV cameras including the body cameras from all door-staff and management. This is available for the police if requested.
‘It’s been a very difficult year for all of us and we want everyone to have a safe and enjoyable night out.’
