Last Saturday night, footage and images emerged of a security guard outside Mbargo, a club popular with students, being violent towards students.

One video shows a clubber being aggressively pushed to the ground, and pictures have emerged of people with bloody faces, after altercations with said security guard.

Mbargo is a popular student night time venue located on the Triangle 

This incident has led to widespread outrage among the student community, with many people reposting the video on Instagram, leading to further questioning of night time safety in Bristol.  

A spokesperson for Mbargo said: 'Overt is an external company who are responsible for the security. Mbargo does not condone any violent or threatening behaviour and are appalled by the actions of the member of security involved. We will be reviewing our current security immediately following this incident and Overt are dealing with the person in question.'

Avon and Somerset Police are now investigating the matter, but have said that the investigation is in the 'early stages.'

Overt Security, the company responsible for security at the club that night, have been contacted for a statement but they have not responded.
