Newquay will not get a new lapdancing club.

It is after licensing officials at Cornwall Council voted to refuse an application to put one in on the old 'Halo's' site.

Police had warned it would spark a rise in sex crimes.

Dave Sleeman speaks for residents and tells the Westcountry Tonight locals do not want it:

"This is a holiday resort which opens in the summer itself. There are families on the street until midnight. They go to the cinema, go out for a meal afterwards and they walk back through the main street itself. This is in the main street of the town, it's not in some back side-street alley where it's out of the way. It's totally inappropirate.

In a statement, Cornwall Council said: "The Council's Miscellaneous Licensing Committee takes its responsibilities very seriously.  This special meeting of the Committee was convened today (25 May 2012) to consider a sex establishment licensing application and members have carefully considered all relevant representations and considerations.  

"The Committee voted to refuse the application on the ground that the grant of the licence would be inappropriate having regard to the character of the relevant locality and the use to which any premises in the vicinity are put.

"Full written reasons for this decision will be sent to the applicant within 5 working days. These will be publicly available in 10 working days."

St Austell and Newquay MP Stephen Gilbert has welcomed the decision, posting on Twitter, "delighted that Cornwall Council has rejected the application for a lap-dance club on Newquay's high street - a victory for people power!"
