AN innocent by-stander struck by flying glass during a fracas in the ladies toilets of an Ely nightclub needed four stitches to a wound.
And on Thursday victim Stephanie Hinds was awarded �100 compensation for her injury by Ely magistrates.
The court heard how Ms Hinds had been "frozen to the spot" as Jodi Mann fought with three other girls at the Glass House.
"The fight was between where she was standing and the door, she was frightened," said Laura Mardell, prosecuting.

Twenty-three-year-old Mann, of Crowland Way, Cambridge, admitted assaulting Stephanie Hinds on November 1, causing her actual bodily harm.
She was given a 12-month conditional discharge and must pay the compensation, along with �85 court costs.
"My client is extremely distressed about what happened, she feels empathy towards the victim," said Veronica Candy, mitigating. "She is distraught she has caused injury."
Mann had been drinking heavily before the incident, she said. A girl threw a drink at Mann, and Mann retaliated by throwing her drink.
"She has not been out since, she has been so horrified about what happened," added Ms Candy.
