Mike Maybury, 75, of Portsmouth, was barred from popular student venue Liquid after a man attacked him for no apparent reason. Mr. Maybury, who attends the club several times a week said he doesn't want to sit at home watching TV like regular people his age. He said, "I love to dance and it's great for fitness." He can usually be found dressed in colourful shirts and sandals, but often when fellow club- bers attempt to dance with him and take pictures, he prefers to keep to himself dancing alone in the corner of the dancefloor. He's not harming anyone and clearly is still up for a good time at his age. We think it's great that the elderly man is still so full of energy.
