Bouncers caught fighting on film.
TWO bouncers have lost their jobs after being caught on camera fighting with a man who'd been ejected from a Colwyn Bay nightspot.
Magistrates at Llandudno heard yesterday the unknown man had been thrown out of the Imperial pub and had attacked 29-year-old Lois Gaze.
But Trevor Gardner, 30, and Gaze, both of Hawarden Road, Colwyn Bay, were ordered to carry out 140 hours unpaid work and pay pounds 300 costs after being convicted of threatening behaviour.
Court chairwoman Sandra Ogden Jones said: "This is an unusual case. It's been brought about by CCTV evidence only, there's no complainant in this matter. However, from the CCTV we feel you went beyond the reasonable boundaries of self-defence.
"We take into consideration the other party may have initiated the incident. We accept you have both lost your good names and standing."
Both were off duty at the time. Nia Dawson, for Gaze, said the unknown man had got away scot-free.
Simon Sargent, for Gardner, said he was a trainee manager at the pub. "There will be significant implications as far as he's concerned," he added.
