MORE doormen are being drafted into Grimsby Top Town pubs to make Christmas safer for revellers.
The preparations come in the wake of an assault outside The Friary pub, on Victoria Street, at 5.45pm on Sunday.
As reported, a 28-year-old man was critically injured, and three men are currently in police custody.
Toni MacNaught, of Lloyds, in Victoria Street, is the chairman of Grimsby PubWatch and said extra staff are being taken on in the run-up to Christmas to reassure customers the town's bars are safe.
She said: "The pubs in town usually take on more door staff before Christmas. They are taken on during weekdays and not just at weekends.
"We have had a couple of incidents over the past two months, but they are quite rare compared to how it was before.
"We have the radio link between most of the pubs and it works well."
Humberside Police has today appealed to anyone who witnessed the assault outside The Friary to come forward.
