The bouncer, Mark Lowles, knocked Nicolas Keefe out cold after seeing the man kiss his girlfriend. He has been jailed for two and a half years.

Lowles, who was also a boxer, martial arts fighter and former marine, was working at Brooklyn Mixer on 24 May last year when he saw his girlfriend kissing Mr Keefe, leading to an argument between the two men. Lowles told Rachel Livingstone to go home and then asked Mr Keefe to go to Back Colquitt Street for a word.

Lowles apparently then shouted at Mr Keefe, before shoving him and punching him in the face. The victim was later hospitalised with a broken jaw and a broken tooth. He needed surgery to have a titanium plate inserted into his jaw, which became infected and required further surgery.

Lowles was previously handed a 15 month suspended sentence in January 2015 for his actions in a disturbance at The Old Roan Pub in Aintree, where he used to work.

Judge Graham Morrow, QC, said: “I’m sure you know that area was not covered by CCTV.

“He was content to go with you, not to cause trouble but to calm the situation down.

“You have damaged your left hand and have five titanium screws in that hand. One or more of those screws were responsible for the injury.

“You know how to use your fists. In your rage and anger you took Mr Keefe to a side street with the intention of inflicting harm.”
