A man has admitted affray in connection with an attack on a Carlisle nightclub manager.

Tim Ip, 26, suffered serious head injuries during the early-morning incident outside the Outrageous nightclub in Lowther Arcade in June.

Connor O'Neil entered a guilty plea during a hearing at Carlisle Crown Court.

The 20-year-old, of Stonegarth, Morton, Carlisle, will be sentenced at the same court at a later date.

Four men and a woman, also charged with affray, pleaded not guilty and will go on trial in July.

They are: Sean Carruthers, 30, of Sunnymeade, Carlisle; Joshua John O'Neil, 22, of Sandpiper Drive, Peterborough; Jodie Patricia O'Neil, 29, of Orchard Lane, Southampton; Lee O'Neil, 30, of Sandpiper Drive, Peterborough; and Ricky Anthony O'Neil, 26, of Balmoral Court, Carlisle.
