Police have urged any witnesses of suspicious activity while on a night out to call them on 101.

They have also issued advice to those on nights out:

- If you are in a group look out for each other.

- Don’t leave your drinks unattended. Carry them with you when dancing and take turns to go to the loo.

- Be wary of accepting drinks from strangers - if you have a drink bought for you, make sure you take it from bar staff.

- Keep an eye out for anyone in your group who appears more drunk than the amount of alcohol they have consumed would warrant.
