Police demand West Wirral bars have licences reviewed
TWO bars in West Wirral are to have their licenses reviewed following alleged violent assaults at the premises.
Merseyside Police have demanded the review for Liberty in West Kirby and the Black Horse Hotel in Heswall.
Documents to be studied by councillors on the licensing committee state the move follows a “serious assault” in Liberty, Grange Road, which happened when “unlicensed activities were taking place”.
The report also claims a police officer was assaulted during an incident at the Black Horse in School Hill.
Several local residents have supported Liberty saying there are “no concerns” regarding management of the bar.
But one householder who lives nearby has complained of anti-social behaviour from customers and noise from entertainment.
Wirral’s licensing committee will make a ruling when it meets on August 17. The committee has the power to modify a bar’s licence, suspend the licence for up to three months or even revoke it.
However councillors may decide no action is necessary.
