Two men have been arrested after door staff at a Bournemouth nightclub had a car driven at them.

A row started outside Halo on Exeter Road in the early hours of Tuesday (12 December), before two men went back in a Vauxhall Corsa.

Three people were injured.

One man's being held on suspicion of attempted murder.

Dorset Police received a report at 2.19am of a serious assault outside Halo nightclub between staff members and two men.

It was reported that a short time before the assault took place, the two men had an altercation with staff before leaving the area. The two men then allegedly returned to the nightclub in a black Vauxhall Corsa and drove directly at door staff.

The road was closed earlier from Gervis Place to the nightclub and a cordon is in place to allow officers to thoroughly examine the scene.

Three men have sustained injuries which are not believed to be life-threatening or life-changing.

A 19-year-old man from Blandford has been arrested on suspicion of attempted murder and a driving offence. A 21-year-old Poole man has been arrested on suspicion of assault. They are both currently assisting officers with their enquiries.

Chief Inspector Heather Dixey, of Dorset Police, said: 

"There were a number of people in the area at the time and I am appealing to anyone who witnessed the incident and has not yet spoken to police to please get in touch."
