Pubwatch in the Westside area of the city has barred Sharna Walker, 25, from all its pubs, bars and clubs for 12 months with immediate effect.

Her details will now be circulated to all 100-plus licensed venues on Westside, the group said.

Ms Walker, from Worcester, was charged by West Midlands Police last month with racially aggravated common assault following an incident outside The Figure of Eight Wetherspoon's pub, on Broad Street, on May 22.

She was also charged with assault, criminal damage and a public order offence.

The charges relate to an incident involving a doorman which was captured on video and later uploaded onto social media where it was viewed millions of times.

Ms Walker was due to appear at Birmingham Magistrates Court on Tuesday but the case has been deferred until September 29.
