A bar in Brentwood High Street has had its license suspended after two stabbings occurred on the premises.

The two serious assaults happened within moments of each other in Bloc 40 on Saturday, 29 May.

One stabbing happened at the venue just after 1.20am and a second, linked, stabbing took place outside the premises a few moments later.

Three men were arrested for the incidents.

One of the men was charged with two counts of GBH and will appear at Basildon Crown Court on Monday, 28 June.

The two others were arrested on suspicion of affray and released on bail until Friday, 25 June.

The licensing sub-committee of Brentwood Borough Council heard concerns from police at a summary review hearing, on Friday 4 June.

It was agreed to suspend Bloc 40’s licence until a full hearing could take place.

Bloc 40 has 21 days in which it can appeal, but the pub has been told to remain closed.

District Commander for Brentwood and Epping, Chief Inspector Ant Alcock said: “In these difficult times when businesses are struggling, it’s not our intention to negatively affect livelihoods.

“But we have to ensure the safety of the customers and the wider public.

“Where serious violence occurs it is the responsibility of the police and local authority to ensure licensed premises are doing the same, the action we’ve taken is in everybody’s best interest.

“I want to assure anyone who attends a licenced venue, regardless of where you are in the county, that your safety will always be our priority. “

A full hearing must take place before Thursday, 3 July.

Anyone can make representations concerning the licence review before Wednesday, 16 June.
