Bangor Takeaway linked to 'violent incidents'


Tomos Hughes

POLICE say a single Bangor takeaway is responsible for 80% of the city’s late night violent incidents.

An application by North Wales Police to Gwynedd Council central licensing sub-committee has recommended the suspension of Star Kebabs, on the High Street, after it was found to be ‘consistently in breach’ of license conditions.

It follows a number of conditions imposed on the business by the council after a catalogue of crime and disorder issues.

Police say that 22 instances of crime and disorder have been linked to the takeaway, ammounting to 80% of the violent incidents at late night refreshment premises in Bangor.

They believe that the Star Kebabs is not doing enough to resolve issues regarding crime and disorder prevention, public safety, public nuisance protection and protection of children from harm.

The takeaway had its opening hours reduced by the council in January 2012, and was later ordered to employ registered door supervisors and install CCTV cameras.

The application recommends the suspension of the premises licence for, ‘a period of three months or any period considered appropriate by the sub-committee’, which would allow the licence holder an opportunity to take steps to resolve the lack of control observed by the Police on the premises.

The licensing sub-committe are due to make a decision on the application in a meeting this Friday, February 22.
