Zap slapped

By-now-actually-venerable Brighton club and venue were fined yesterday after ignoring council warnings to keep their rubbish under lock and key.

The Zap was one of a number of clubs and restaurants - and Pizza Hut - hit with on-the-spot fines in a swoop (yes, a swoop) which saw Brighton and Hove Council make £700 in an hour. The Zap has previously been fined 31 times for flyposting - which suggests that they might not view the fixed penalties as much of a deterrent.
