Roof fall man was making desperate bid to get in to club.

A MAN who fell through the roof of a Coventry nightclub at the weekend is believed to have been refused entry although his friend had been allowed inside.

The man, aged 19 or 20, took the desperate measure to get into Spon End's Irish Centre 2000 at 12.50am on Sunday.

He injured seven people when he landed on the dance floor, before running off.

Coventry police say the man, who was wearing a dark-blue long-sleeved shirt and dark trousers, was from the south west and spoke with a Welsh or Bristol accent.

He is described as 5 ft 4 in, was clean shaven and had a skinhead haircut.

The roof at the club has now been fixed and the club will be open from tomorrow as normal.

Admission will be free on Friday and Saturday as a good will gesture.
