A man in the US is believed to have won a large payout after a dancer's platform shoe shattered his eye socket at a strip club.

Lawyer Lake Lytal said the Cheetah club's insurance company agreed earlier this month to pay Michael Ireland 650,000 US dollars (£406,000) for the injury.

Mr Lytal said Mr Ireland has had eye problems since the 2008 incident at the West Palm Beach club in Florida.

He said the dancer claimed in a deposition she was walking on the bar, felt someone touch her and swung around. Mr Lytal said her metal heel went into Mr Ireland's eye socket and shattered it, requiring extensive surgery.

The Cheetah club would not comment on the case, and the insurance company was unavailable for comment.
