Glassing victim campaigns for use of plastic glasses
A WOMAN who needed surgery after a glassing attack in a St Helier nightclub has launched a petition to ban glass being used in bars and clubs.
Amanda Le Feuvre required an operation to repair damage to her nose and lip following the attack in Tanguy’s night club. Her attacker, Brogan Allen, was jailed for 15 months earlier this year.
In an interview with the JEP after Allen’s sentencing, Miss Le Feuvre announced her intention to start a petition and a campaign to have plastic used in late-night venues. Some bars have said they back the idea but believe it might not be feasible to introduce.
Now Miss Le Feuvre has officially launched her petition, which has so far garnered 60 signatures.
The wording on the petition reads: ‘There have been recent incidents in which people have been assaulted with glasses used in bars and clubs; with these assaults leading to serious damage and requiring surgery to be repaired.
‘Glasses used in late bars and clubs should be replaced with glass-like, dishwater safe and unbreakable polycarbonate glasses.’
