A Magaluf nightclub descended into a 'bloodbath' after a British soldier slashed her female colleague with a glass bottle, horrified witnesses have claimed.
Sydney Cole, 19, from London, allegedly plunged a shattered glass into her friend Sarah Garrity's neck at Bananas de Magaluf club on the Spanish island of Majorca.
Ms Garrity, 22, who lives in Middlesbrough, was found in a critical condition outside the night spot and is in intensive care in hospital.
The alleged attack took place at around 1am in the early hours of Monday morning in the popular party area of Punta Bellena and followed some sort of argument between the two soldiers.
Witnesses described seeing the two off-duty women, who are thought to have been friends, arguing at the bar.

One of the woman came away from the confrontation with blood coming from her nose, according to the Sun.
A man who tried to break up the pair said when he went to calm the situation down, Cole allegedly smashed a bottle into Garrity's shoulder.
He told the Sun: 'Suddenly ''bang'' the other smaller girl smacked her on the shoulder blade with her beer bottle. It was a really nasty hit and the red mist just descended.'
A man named as Suleiman, who was working at a kebab shop next door to the nightclub, described the scene as a 'bloodbath' when he saw the injured soldier, who is in the Royal Logistics Corps, collapse outside his restaurant.
He added: 'I couldn't look it was so horrible. It was horrific. There was blood everywhere.
'I could hardly bring myself to look. It was a huge gash, and quite a hole that wouldn't stop bleeding.'
