Two other men, a 52-year-old and a 34-year-old arrested on suspicion of GBH, and a 30-year-old woman arrested on suspicion of aiding and abetting actual bodily harm, have all been released on bail until 18 March.

A 29-year-old doorman at the venue, which is also known as Misty's, sustained stab wounds on the night and another was knocked unconscious.

Both men were taken to the Royal Sussex County Hospital, Brighton, for treatment to their injuries, none of which was considered life-threatening.
