Dear Security Industry Authority,
I was assaulted by the securities working in forum club in hatfield. I was punched and kicked and torch and radio was used. They came to the road opposite the venue where there is no CCTV cameras and just bust and pushed everyone. The main concern was I got heat injury with bleeding where i was collapsed on the floor.Secondly I believe the guys who assaulted me does not have the SIA licence as they were not displaying which I saw in photos taken from my friend. Could you please suggest me what should I do next.?

Yours faithfully,
