GOOD Samaritans have slammed a young woman's friend after she abandoned her in the street on a drunken night out.

The Cheltenham Guardians have said the boozed-up woman was so "intoxicated" she could have been raped or murdered.

The girl was said to be so drunk she could hardly walk and was denied entry to a nightclub, the Mirror reported.

The Cheltenham Guardians refer to her as Sarah, not her real name, and say she was meant to be staying with a friend they've called Beth.

When Beth was retrieved from the club by security the volunteers said it was clear she saw Sarah as an "incovenience".

The community group works with police in Cheltenham, Gloucestershire, to provide care for people on night outs.

A patrol approached the woman after receiving a radio call from a nightclub telling them a drunk woman needed help.

A Cheltenham Guardians member wrote on Facebook: "We quickly ascertained that 'Sarah' (not her real name) had been refused entry into the club as she was intoxicated and very unsteady on her feet.

"We also learned that Sarah's friends were aware of her situation and had left her alone with no money whilst they continued on into the club. They abandoned her to the night.

"Had vigilant door security or Guardians not been there for 'Sarah' any number of negative situations could have occurred such was her level of intoxication."

They added: "It was clear to us when we met 'Beth' that she believed 'Sarah' to be an inconvenience. The club beckoned and Sarah's needs were secondary.

"Tiring a little of seeing situations such as this one Guardian Marian gave 'Beth' chapter and verse about looking after and not abandoning your friends when you are out.

"We felt as though the message didn't get through. 'Beth' put 'Sarah' into a taxi and returned to the club."

Facebook users joined in and slammed the woman's friend.

One wrote: "Anyone who abandons an intoxicated friend is not truly a friend, but utter scum. Sarah – find yourself some new friends. You don't need these lowlives!"

Other suggested Sarah should take responsibility for her actions.

They wrote: "Nobody should get so intoxicated they cannot look after themselves. If she had no money why was she going into a club.

"Always easy to keep pointing fingers but at the end of the day it's 18 to drink and your classed as an adult. So be responsible for your own actions."

The group has an "India Protocol" named after 20-year-old India Chipcase who was raped and murdered in Northampton last year.

They approach every lone female they see to make sure they don't need help.
