A man arrested by police after a car was driven through a crowd of people outside a Rochdale nightclub has been released on bail.

At least 23 people were injured when a car was deliberately driven at door staff outside the Dali Bar, in Packer Street, at 0210 BST on Sunday.

The 26-year-old was questioned on suspicion of attempted murder, but has been bailed pending further inquiries.

Police are still looking for another man believed to have been involved.

Officers want to speak to Lee Anthony Bradley, 26, from Rochdale, about the incident.

He is believed to be one of two men in the car who had previously been refused entry to the bar.

Police believe they then returned and drove the car at the club.

Seven men and seven women were taken to hospital by ambulance and several others went to hospital for treatment for minor injuries.

Three remain in hospital, but they are not thought to have life-threatening injuries.
