A man has been caught on camera slapping a female bouncer before scaling a taxi in a wild rampage this weekend.

The assault happened at around 11.50pm on Saturday June 12 on the corner of Princess Street and Canal Street outside the New Union Hotel & Showbar in the Manchester's Gay Village.

Bystanders gasp as the raucous reveller strikes the female bouncer during an argument with the doormen.

Her colleagues are filmed pursuing the man as he tries to flee the scene and he even climbs a taxi to evade the security staff – before they hurl him onto the pavement and dramatically detain him.

The individual – who filmed the footage – said they did not know how the altercation erupted between the man and the bouncers.

Police confirmed a man was arrested at the scene.

At the start of the video, the man can be heard verbally abusing multiple security employees outside the bar.

Greater Manchester Police in a statement said: "Police were called shortly after 11.50pm on Saturday 12 June to a report of a man being aggressive towards door staff outside the New Union Hotel on Princess Street, Manchester."

"Christian St Hilaire, 30, of Nottingham, was detained and later taken to custody by officers.

"He was subsequently charged with single counts of section 39 assault and battery, and appeared at Manchester and Salford Magistrates' Court on Monday."

The CPS confirmed St Hilaire pleaded guilty to three offences: common assault, criminal damage, and assault by beating and was sentenced to 10 weeks imprisonment for each offence, to run concurrently.

The incident followed unrelated yet shocking scenes at Southend seafront – where a 10-man brawl and saw deckchair after deckchair thrown as tempers boiled over on one of the hottest days of the year.

Onlookers watched on in horror as the men threw chairs and even tables at the Essex tourist hotspot.

The yobs appeared to be enjoying their drinks at the seafront cafe Pebbles One when someone saw red.

Witnesses said they were upset that children and families had to see the fight, which came on the day England played Croatia in the Euros 2020 tournament.

The Your Southend group posted the video to their Facebook site, saying: "We were sent this shocking video of a fight between two groups of men on Southend seafront, which reportedly happened today."
