Borough council leader Peter Gardiner said: "Of course violence concerns everybody in the town in which you live.

"We've been working with the clubs and the police and others in terms of putting more funding into CCTV and we've also been purchasing mobile cameras that the police can use around the town.

"Ipswich has had a very good CCTV system for a very long time and obviously now we need to try and progress that to cover more and more of the spots that come up.

"In fact now, if something like a club or bar opens, we ask them to provide their own CCTV cameras."

Police are continuing their investigation into the attack and they are appealing for witnesses to contact officers on 01473 613500.
