An advert in the Metro newspaper says: "Door Dwarfs required for The Hippodrome Casino, London.

"The Hippodrome is seeking to create a team of Britain's smallest bouncers - Door Dwarfs - for its new entrance in Cranbourn Street, Leicester Square.

"Duties include door control and customer relations.

"We welcome applications from those under 4ft 10 inches."

They hope to have their Door Dwarf team in place by December.

Hippodrome Casino owner Simon Thomas said: "We wanted to add some extra spectacle to Leicester Square.

"The Hippodrome is a building with a rich tradition of theatrical innovation with a history of dwarf acts appearing here. It fits perfectly with the way we do things here – differently, with a lot of fun involved, and we think they will be very effective on the door."
