"(It was) just a normal night out at Blake's Nightclub in Gravesend in Kent", Mr Powar said.

Partygoers are feared to be seriously injured after a auto smashed into a Kent nightclub during a gig for grime artist Giggs, according to reports on social media.

It drove into Blake's nightclub in Queen Street at about 11.45pm on Saturday, March 17.

Footage of the incident shows cops pulling the suspect out of the seriously damaged vehicle, surrounded by an angry crowd.

Police believe others who were injured might have left the scene, and want to speak to anyone hurt to establish the number of victims.

The driver was pulled from the auto by clubbers, who detained him while police arrived.

He said: 'My God I almost died. A guy who didn't get let in drove in the club. As soon as the incident took place, Kent fire, rescue service and ambulance crews were also called to the scene.

Kent Police were called to Blake's, a dance and night club, at 11:47 p.m. on Saturday, after "a number of people" were injured when a auto drove into the nightclub building, officials said in a statement.

Preliminary Results Say Putin Won Presidential Elections
Most people who spoke to AFP said they voted for Putin, praising him for lifting the country out of the post-Soviet quagmire. Vladimir Putin has unsurprisingly won Russia's presidential election, gaining at least 73.9% of the vote, exit polls say.

Witness Sonny Powar said he saw two people get hit by the auto before the driver was pulled from the vehicle.

Kent police said the driver was believed to have been asked to leave the venue following an altercation, and added that the incident was not being treated as terrorism.

'Although we are deeply saddened that injuries occurred, we are grateful that no one was fatally hurt.

He told The Sun: "I saw all the security guards shouting".

A post has been shared on Blake's Facebook page, saying "thoughts and prayers" go to all those caught up in the incident and thanking the "heroic actions" of the club's security team.
