Fabric nightclub forced to close its doors

Fabric, one of Britain’s best known nightclubs, has been forced to close permanently after its licence was revoked following the drug-related deaths of two people.

After deliberation that lasted into the early hours of Wednesday morning, Islington borough council decided that searches by security staff had been “inadequate and in breach of the licence”.

It added that covert police operations suggested people were openly buying and taking illegal drugs on the premises and that staff should have been aware of it, according to an article in The Guardian.

Last month the Metropolitan Police applied to the council for the licence to be reviewed, due to what it described as “concerns about serious crime” associated with the nightclub.
