One of the more-balanced Atomic Kittens, Natasha Hamilton, has quietly been making a new life for herself as a bar owner in Liverpool. It's been going well, so far.
Liverpool City Council has closed the place down on police advice, suspending the licence:
Isn't the "capacity to carry lethal weapons" having hands and perhaps a belt? I know he meant "may own lethal weapons", but could he not say that?
The club had started checking for knives and guns on Fridays and Saturdays; their suggestion to try and save the licence was to really crack down and see if people were bringing in knives every night of the week. It's possibly a little too late, given that people were stabbed in the H Bar on Sunday night/Monday morning.
The H Bar is appealing against the decision; the appeal will be heard tomorrow.
Hamilton has pronounced herself gobsmacked:
“We pride ourselves on the safety and security of all of the crowd who fill H every weekend and that of our staff."
Not a single incident of violence or disorder. Erm, apart from the double stabbing, of course.
