Islington bars' late-night levy 'unfair and damaging'

Business owners in Islington say a new tax which will contribute towards late night policing is unfair and damaging.

It's the first borough in London to introduce a levy on licensed bars and restaurants. Islington Council says the money will go towards dealing with the problems related to the late night economy.

Arthur Gaidukevics, manager of Anam Bar; Patrick Donnelly, owner of Slim Jim's Liquor Store and Labour councillor Paul Convery from Islington Council all give their thoughts on the levy.
