Police have secured a closure order against a shop in Worthing following reports of disturbances.
Eight Till Late and Pie & Mash on Chapel Road has been ordered to close for three months following a number of reports of anti-social behaviour.
Officers from our Neighbourhood Licensing Team worked alongside Adur and Worthing Councils and West Sussex County Council Trading Standards to secure the closure order which was confirmed at Brighton Magistrates’ Court on Wednesday, 22 November.
Sergeant Jamie Bray said: “We know these stores had a large impact on the community and it is brilliant that the closure order has been put through.
“The team have worked extremely hard to put this before the court. I hope this will benefit the community.”
Councillor Duncan Crow, West Sussex County Council, said: “Trading Standards have been working very closely with Sussex Police regarding the ongoing issues at this premises.
“This a really positive outcome and a good example of working with partners to crack down on illegal activity in Worthing to keep residents safe.”
