A Manchester nightclub manager and two of his doorstaff have received medals from the police.

Keith Ifield and door supervisors Abid Hussain and Jason Coleman witnessed a woman in collision with a car outside 5th Avenue nightclub in Manchester city centre.

Hussain and Coleman followed the vehicle to obtain its registration details and later managed to detain the driver until police arrived.

Meanwhile, Ifield assisted the victim by helping to move a parked car away from her and directing traffic to prevent further injury.

He also helped to comfort the victim's friends and provided an area for officers to take witness statements.

Commander of Greater Manchester Police's North Manchester Division, chief superintendent Justine Curran, said:

"I am delighted to be presenting these awards to five people who have gone beyond the call of duty, by helping to stand up to crime and protect members of the public.

"These commendations are a sign of our appreciation for their efforts.

"Their swift actions have helped to bring a car thief to justice and prevented a road traffic victim from receiving further injuries".

Phil Burke from Manchester Pub & Club Network said:

"These guys clearly deserve this special police award for their outstanding actions in stopping this driver from escaping justice."
