Aspers Casino has had its alcohol licence revoked by Newham Council after security staff allegedly “beat up” a punter.
The supercasino in Westfield Stratford City will be unable to serve alcohol at any time or food between the hours of 11pm and 5am, following the incident on Saturday night.
The decision was made at an emergency licensing hearing held this morning, during which footage of the CCTV attack was played. The assault left the customer with a “severe injury”.
The ban on alcohol, with immediate effect, comes just two weeks after the council issued a glass ban following a series of drunken attacks.
A Newham Council spokesperson said: “The decision was made in view of the seriousness of the incident and the police and licensing sub-committee’s concerns about the casino’s ability to prevent crime and disorder.
