Police object to extra opening hours for ‘I’m a Celebrity’ winner’s Sudbury nightclub visit
Suffolk Constabulary has objected to extended opening hours at Infinity Night Club in Sudbury for the visit of reality TV star Vicky Pattison.
Licensee holder Derek Smith had applied to Babergh District Council for an additional opening hour for Pattison’s visit to the East Street club on Saturday, February 6.
He had requested to close an hour later at 4.30am on Sunday, February 7.
However, police have objected, citing reports of low level violence.
The matter will now be decided by Babergh’s licensing committee at a meeting on Tuesday.
In a letter to Babergh Pc McAuley wrote: “After consideration, we wish to make a representation as in our opinion we feel that the approval of the application would compromise one of the objective, namely the prevention of crime and disorder.
“We feel since July 2015, the premises has suffered numerous reports of low level violence, anti-social behaviour and excessive drunkenness.
“This is currently being monitored by police and the local authority with a view to working with the premises to show an improvement.
“At this time, it is too soon to report a significant improvement and would not currently support any increase in hours through a temporary event notice, even if the premises are adhering to their conditions during the temporary event notice.”
Pattison, who is also a model and TV presenter, recently won one of ITV’s flagship programmes ‘I’m a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here’.
