A boxing tournament is being held in Keighley to choose the toughest bouncer in the British Isles.

The UK and Ireland Hardest Door Supervisor contest will raise money for Keighley and Airedale Cancer Support.

A dozen men and women have already signed up to fight for a top prize of £1,000 in the March 9 event at Victoria Hall.

A spokesman for the organisers said: “As security professionals, we are always told to calm the situation down and walk away.

“We are trained not to resort to violence, but here we have a great opportunity to vent that anger in a sort of positive way.”

The doors will open at 2.30pm and the boxing matches will begin half-an-hour later. Tickets cost from £25 to £40. Visit ukshardest.co.uk for further information.
