UK: Pub in Nottingham will hold weekly 'girls only' night with all female staff after spate of reports of women being spiked with needles

Article here. Excerpt:

'A pub in Nottingham said it will ban men for one night a week after reports of women being spiked by injection while out clubbing in the city.

The Playwright, which is near Nottingham Trent University's city campus, will have its first girls-only night on November 3.

All the staff working that night will also only be women.

Josh Wheelhouse, the manager of the pub, told Nottinghamshire Live: 'We are just very excited to do it.

'I have already spoken to a couple of societies at Nottingham Trent University, and we will actually organise workshops to educate women on what to do in situations that would put them at risk.'

Mr Wheelhouse said he was initially unsure whether to introduce the ban on men because he was afraid people would see him as 'the guy who is trying to make money out of this terrifying thing that happens to women'.

However, he said: 'I needed to do something.

'I do not think it is fair for women to stay home.

'We should be the ones to do that.''
