A woman who was left permanently scarred when she was hit in the face by a flying glass bottle is calling for them to be banned in nightclubs across the UK.
Debbie Strachan had travelled through to Dundee for a night out in March last year when she was struck in the face while in Liquid nightclub.
Francis Monaghan is due to be sentenced today for the attack, which left Debbie, 32, needing 30 stitches.
Now she is campaigning to get all glass items removed from nightclubs across the UK to make sure no one else suffers like she has.
She has launched a petition to try to force a change.
The mother-of-two, who lives in Stirling, said: “With the amount of stories I’ve seen, incidents like what happened to me are going on quite a lot. So I wanted to get the petition together as I can’t see why we can’t ban glasses.
“I don’t want to see anyone else going through what I did. It could have been so much worse for me.
“You get searched at nightclubs to get weapons taken off you and then you get inside and you get one handed to you again at the bar. It makes no sense.”
Councillor Kevin Keenan, who sits on the licensing board in Dundee, said if the petition was brought forward to the board he would like to see it considered.
He said nightclubs should consider plastic tumblers, pointing out that some bars had already adopted them.
