Karma nightclub in Chippenham closed down

A Chippenham nightclub has been closed down after councillors were shown footage of "alcohol-fuelled violent crime" outside the premises.

The Karma nightclub on Station Hill had its licence revoked following an application by Wiltshire Police.

Wiltshire Council's licensing sub-committee was shown footage of crime and anti-social behaviour.

Wednesday's hearing was the second in nine months over issues raised to the club's management.

In a statement Wiltshire Police said: "We are fully committed to tackling and reducing incidents of violent crime and disorder on the streets of our towns.

"Where there is evidence that licensed premises are not acting irresponsibly, robust action will be taken to ensure compliance."
