Arrests made following raid at pub
POLICE made four arrests after raiding and shutting down a pub in South Cambs.
The operation took place at about 7pm on Friday (May 25) at the Longbow pub, in Stapleford.
It was in response to complaints by members of the public and a series of incidents of violence, disorder and anti-social behaviour.
The pub was closed under Section 161 of the Licensing Act but the order will be reviewed at a hearing at Cambridge Magistrates’ Court this afternoon (May 28).
Police have also asked for an “expedited review” of the pub’s licence under Section 53a of the Licensing Act. The review is due to take place at a licensing committee meeting on Wednesday.
