AN East End off-licence is hoping to win permission today to sell booze 24 hours a day.

Kalender Onay, owner of Devons Food and Wine in Devons Road, Bow has applied to Tower Hamlets council to extend his alcohol licence.

But the Metropolitan Police and Environmental Health insist the residential area is already battling with anti-social behaviour and the new licence would be "inviting trouble".

Officers also insist that similar shops in the area have not been allowed to sell booze beyond midnight because of the problems.

Tower Hamlets council's Licensing Sub Committee will be discussing the application from 5.30pm at the Town Hall in Mulberry Place.
