Bar and nightclub door staff in Newcastle are to be trained to take better care of drunk and vulnerable people out on the town.

The new training for bouncers has been piloted in the city and is due to be rolled out across the rest of England.

The initiative follows a recent incident when one drunk 17-year-old girl was thrown out of a Newcastle club and later raped by two men.
