Glass Bottle Ban For Newquay Nightclub
3:39pm 25th January 2012
Glass bottles are banned at a Newquay nightclub, after a string of violent attacks.
Three people were hurt in glassings at The Beach last summer.
One woman has been left with permanent scarring.
Now licensing bosses say drinks will have to be served in plastic containers.
An ID scanner is being brought in too.
Environmental Health have asked the club to fit thicker doors, because concerns over noise.
Town Councillor Geoff Brown is calling for a change in the law: "I think we should be positively encouraging it, and I would look to our MPs and the government to actually put pressure on the licensing trade to do that. The brewers have a responsibility to the customers that they're serving to actually make sure they're as safe as possible."
Geoff adds the consequences of attacks like these can be massive: "Some of them are even life changing. There's a young man, I believe, campaigning at the moment who was going to train to be a doctor and his whole life and his career has been changed because of a glassing incident, and the more that we can do to reduce this sort of glassing incident, the better."
No-one from the club has been available to comment.
