Blood Red Shoes singer assaulted by bouncer
It’s not the best ending to the night in Manchester
Laura-Mary Carter from Blood Red Shoes was assaulted in Manchester last night after a security official mistook her for an underage fan.

The band played the Bar Academy in Manchester last night, which culminated in a stage invasion at the end of the show. In the fray, the diminutive vocalist was picked on by an irate bouncer who overstepped the mark dramatically.

"I left the backstage area carrying a bottle of wine to go and watch Pull Tiger Tail, writes Laura-Mary Carter. "The next thing I knew a bouncer grabbed my neck from behind and started to drag me out of the venue. When we got to the stairs he tackled me in a Johnny Wilkinson way and I fell and hit my head on the stairs and slashed my arm open.

"Luckily Charlie from the Rumble Strips saw what was going on and jumped to my rescue by pulling the bouncer off me. It was all a bit of a blur, there was blood everywhere from my arm - it was pretty scary. I promised to make Charlie an apple pie for being such a hero. Apparently it was all because the bouncer thought I was underage."

We're informed the bouncer in question has since been sacked.
