UNIVERSITY revellers in the East End will be enjoying an extra pint as the Queen Mary Students' Union is given the green light to extend its booze licence.
The union in Bancroft Road in Mile End has been given the go-ahead to stay open for an extra two hours on Sunday, Monday and Tuesdays as well as sell alcohol and play music until 2pm throughout the week.
Permission was granted by Tower Hamlets council's Licensing Sub Committee despite opposition from neighbours who claimed the rowdy students were keeping them up at night and parking outside their homes.
Stephen Beckett who lives in Bancroft Road and wrote to the Town Hall said: "One of the many problems caused by the events held there is parking and the disruption to my life and sleep.
You may also want to watch:
"Quite often we have to call university security or the police to curb loud, boisterous or aggressive drunken and anti-social behaviour of the revellers and their guests."
But permission was given on the condition that there would be notices handed out telling students not to park on Bancroft Road and to leave the union quietly.
