Northampton Lost nightclub loses licence after assaults

A Northampton nightclub may be forced to close after its licence was revoked following a "catalogue of incidents", including a number of assaults.

Lost, in St Peter's Square, was found to have breached the conditions of its licence by the borough council.

A spokesman for Northamptonshire Police said the decision reflected the "serious nature" of the breaches.

The company has appealed against the decision and continues to trade ahead of a further hearing within 21 days.

Licensing officer Sgt Mark Worthington said: "This sends a message to the rest of the licensed trade that premises that are not run properly, with due regard for the licensing objectives, will be a focus for police activity.

"We will use all powers available to us to reduce violence in the night-time economy."
