West Midlands Police has spoken out as Sandwell Council revokes a licence at a nightclub in Wednesbury
and live on Freeview channel 276
A bar in Wednesbury has been shut down due to its links with ‘serious disorder’.
The licence had been temporarily suspended after a man sustained serious injuries following an incident on 13 August. He was later dropped off at Walsall Manor Hospital.
The bar’s licence has now been revoked on the grounds that the Prevention of Crime and Disorder Licencing objective was being undermined. A decision notice will be issued to the bar in the coming days and they have the right of appeal to the Magistrates Court within 21 days of their receipt of the letter.
Superintendent Lisa-Jayne Robson, from Sandwell Local Policing Area, said: "Our number one priority is public safety and we will not tolerate venues that attract crime. We are still appealing for anyone with information about the incident on August 13 to get in touch with our investigation team via Live Chat on our West Midlands Police website or by calling 101 quoting log 594 of 13/8. Alternatively contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111. Tell us what you know not who you are.”
