Police shut down Castle pub
A Plaistow landlady had her licence revoked after repeatedly failing to show it to council officers and police.
The Castle on Barking Road was also the venue for a string of violent incidents, the Town Hall’s licensing committee heard earlier this month.
Sandra Gray, who was designated premises supervisor at the pub owned by Enterprise Inns, failed to show the licence for the venue on three separate occasions.
The committee also heard how 28-victim was treated for a shattered jaw after a fight broke out in the beer garden and, on another occasion when a man was assaulted, CCTV was not working, despite it being one of the conditions of the licence.
The council’s noise and nuisance team reported it had received complaints about loud music coming from the venue and its patrons urinating in the street.

Licensing Detective Sgt Robin Harman said: “This pub has been a generator of serious violence for some years and refused to co-operate with police. The licensing committee agreed with our recommendation that the pub hours should be curtailed and the licensee removed.
“Hopefully the owners of the pub will find a new licensee as soon as possible, so that it can re-open and be properly run.”
