  12. Your comments: Alleged 'hate crime' at nightclub probed


    The story about Mahalia Hamid and her friends being turned away from a nighclub (see 09:18) is still the subject of plenty of debate over on BBC Radio Nottingham's Facebook page.

    Ian Rogers writes: "My friends and I have been turned away from venues countless times over the years, we just walk to the next one, no big deal."  

    Mark Hammans adds: "Any private premises can refuse entry as they see fit it is a difficult job keeping orderly premises and no doubt other people will have been refused entry to other premises. It may have inconvenienced you but you are not out of pocket. Think there is an element of attention seeking."   

  13. Weather: Mild afternoon ahead
