Councillors give reprieve to Worthing club owners

The Argus: Liquid Lounge in Chatsworth Road, Worthing Liquid Lounge in Chatsworth Road, Worthing

Councillors have agreed to give owners of a troubled nightclub a second chance by agreeing not to revoke their licence.

Worthing Borough Council's licensing committee last night (January 23) agreed to allow the management of the Liquid Lounge and Light Bar in Worthing to retain their licence as long as they stick to new conditions on its licence.

The clubs will reopen under different names after serving a three weeks imposed closure.

As part of a memorandium of agreement drawn up with Sussex Police prior to the meeting, the club owners will have to have an ID scanner in place on their door, door staff will have to wear video equipment and glass bottles will not be allowed to be served to customers.

The committee also called on a stop of the "Ibiza" style drinking games held at the club.

For a full report on the committee's decision see Friday's Argus.

I wonder what this was meant to say?

Is Ibizia somewhere near Fernando's?

Does worthing not have the same as brighton?The clubs and late bars in brighton have private security on the doors and if you walk round brighton you see loads of emergency responce vehicles which are private security to back the door staff up.Unfortunately this has resulted in a dramatic fall in visable police on brighton and hoves streets after dark,this is why areas such as St James street have become unsafe after dark.I hope after the man in charge of our police retires in march we get someone who is in favour of visable police AFTER DARK the current leader is more concerned with his buget,on paper ge looks good but in reality he has removed police from the front line,venues are quite safe but the streets of brighton and hove are NOT visable police are the biggest deterrant relying on private security and CCTV and the rare sighting of police in a vehicle ARE NOT.
