Mr Bowes is understood to have been outside the club when he collapsed after trying to regain entry.

Management at Rivals had hired out the venue to the promoters of an event called Breakology.

The promoters of the event had hired extra door staff from an independent security firm.

Bunches of floral tributes were left outside Rivals where Mr Bowes collapsed.

On a touching note attached to a bunch of flowers, he was described by a friend called Elaine as having a "heart of gold".
