A NIGHTCLUB has lost its licence in London's East End after police objections and protests from neighbours about the noise.

The Edge nightspot in East London's Commercial Street had its license revoked at a Tower Hamlets licensing meeting on Tuesday (July 22).

The review was triggered by Town Hall environmental protection officers after complaints about noise, public safety and nuisance.

Tower Hamlets council's environment department three years ago found the club was causing a noise nuisance.

It served an abatement notice on licensee Jaspal Rathor in October, 2005.

But this was breached on many occasions, the Town Hall's licensing sub-committee was told.

Rathor also broke a temporary 'stop' notice issued last February, requiring the venue in Commercial-street to stick to the opening hours allowed, 9am to midnight Monday to Saturday and 9am to 11.30pm on Sundays.

Cllr Alex Heslop, who chaired the review, said after the meeting: "He ignored 'stop' notices and abatement orders, which affected the quality of life of people living in the area.

"We have worked for a long time with police on this matter and unanimously agreed to revoke the licence because alternations or imposing new conditions would still not ensure the club met the objectives."

Rathor appeared before Thames magistrates in June when he admitted breaching a planning 'stop' notice and noise abatement order and was fined £11,000.
