Four Brent men are facing jail after admitting to beating up a clubber outside the UK’s only nightclub with its own swimming pool.

A fifth man Thomas Ferrier May, 23, from Harrow, also admitted taking part in the brutual attack.

The Old Bailey heard the victim needed hospital treatment after the assault on December 21 last year.

Today, all five defendants pleaded guilty to inflicting grievous bodily harm, and a further offence of violent disorder and will be sentenced on June 14.
