Shoreham Street crash ‘looked like something out of a horror movie’

She said: “It was my birthday event. I was upstairs changing, so I didn’t see what happened. I descended to carnage. Everything calmed down and at first I thought they had to change DJs. But I came down and saw glass and injured people. It looked like a horror movie.

Her mum said: ‘I went into shock mode, trying to help people. I couldn’t believe what I was seeing. We got people who weren’t hurt out of the fire escapes and helped the injured in any way we could. We got the first aid kit and tried to help the injured, and covered them with what we could.

“The ambulances arrived very quickly.

“They were innocent people who were out to have a good time.”

When will Bellairz reopen after the Shoreham Street car incident?

The board must confirm whether the building is in a safe condition.

The club owners are considering what additional security measures can be put in place to protect this glass frontage through which the car crashed and are considering asking the council for bollards on the pavement.

The mum said: ‘We didn’t think the window was a risk – but if there’s anything to make it safer, we’re 100 per cent behind it. Our customers are our top priority.
