Footage below, which some people may find distressing, shows parts of the attack at about 2.15am, with fighting in the road and one man armed with a large knife attacking someone outside Browns strip club as someone yells: "Get inside!".

The victims' injuries are not said to be life-threatening and three teenage boys have been bailed after they were held on suspicion of offences including affray and GBH.

Detectives are now appealing for information and additional footage of the incident.
