A doorman is checking his phone outside an entertainment venue in Leake Street Tunnel, London.

A doorman in London typically earns about £22,000 a year, which is way below the city’s average of £35,000.

Moreover, doormen who work at nightclubs are susceptible to threats, verbal abuse and physical assaults. Some develop chronic sleeping disorder and stress.
