Kane Ellis, 24, whose father is Basildon Ukip councillor Mark Ellis, was somehow injured at Unit 7 in Basildon’s Festival Leisure Park.

An Essex Police spokesman said: “We are investigating a report that a man was stabbed in in the back with an unknown item, at a club in Basildon on December 17.”Gosh! So, which is it?
