The Argus: Police want licence revoked for club which featured in Channel 4 show detailing life inside life inside nightclub loos Police want licence revoked for club which featured in Channel 4 show detailing life inside life inside nightclub loos

A nightclub which featured in the Channel 4 programme Up All Night: The Nightclub Toilet has been called into question by Sussex Police.

The force wants JJ Whispers in High Street, Crawley, to have its licence revoked.

In a statement the club said: “Sussex Police has submitted a review application to Crawley Borough Council on JJ Whispers nightclub requesting that the licence be revoked following incidents of drunkenness, sexual assaults and drunk and disorderly behaviour within the premises and in the immediate area.

“A hearing will take place at Crawley Borough Council in March.”

During the programme people were shown slapping one another’s bottoms, shouting about their private parts and breaking dancing on the floor near the urinals.

Nothing in those toilets that doesn't go on in every other night club toilets, i.e. people who are drunk, shouting, mucking about, urinating, taking drugs etc etc

If that place should be shut down, surely same must apply to every other night club full of drunken 18 to 25 year olds.

Urinating in a pub toilet? In my day we used to save that for the phone box on the way home.

Does anyone else remember when police used to be on our streets after dark? im not sure about crawley but these have the same police force.in Brighton a d Hove our nightlife is policed by private security backed up by private security parked in cars where once police cars used to park.Any trouble on our streets is blamed on our nighttime economy,if the police were actually on our streets it would actually deter trouble.Remember when west street used to have police dogs on duty and a large police presence that vart rarely occurs these days as police only now respond to 999 calls.Its not the police on dutys fault I certainly would not go into a situation where I didn't have backup after the massive police cuts.The police want our nightlife to stop,worthing used to be a place to go but the police object to everything and are trying to close the nightlife left down.I do admit crime is up but its because a bad element is attracted out as they know the police are no longer on duty,a visable police force deters trouble and makes the streets safe.The sad thing that official crime figures say crime is down,but in reality its massively up its just that we have very few police on duty after dark to record any.And if the public want to record crime the local police stations have now closed,and as I found out last year the polices online reporting form gets totally ignored probably to cut workload.Get visable police back on our streets and I think it will once again make our night time economy safe.

Pretty sure Sussex Police won't have made their decision based only on the contents of the TV programme!

"...JJ Whispers had not responded to requests for a comment." What, apart from the surprisingly frank statement that the entire shoddy article relies upon? Or was that statement wrongly attributed to 'the club', when it was actually issued by Sussex Police?

With its left wing tendancy I thought it was a Moscow mag.
