A DYSERTH pub is to have its licence reviewed after police say it has failed to prevent crime and disorder at the premises.

Y Bodunig, based on the High Street, will have its licence reviewed by Denbighshire Council's licensing sub-committee at a meeting today (Wednesday).

North Wales Police has called for the review following complaints about noise, a number of assaults and a video which surfaced on social media showing a drinking challenge taking place on the premises.

North Wales Police said in view of these incidents they consider the premises is not being managed in a responsible manner.

The report to the committee said a serious assault took place inside the premises on February 15, 2013 while a compliant was received from a resident relating to noise up until 4am on weekends on March 2, 2013.

On September 14 the same year there was an assault by a male customer on a female customer while there was a further serious assault by a male on October 13.

On December 8, 2013 there was an assault on the designated premises supervisor.

Licence holder Abdulhamit Salih Colakoglu said that to his knowledge there had only been three incidents of fighting in the street over the past three years, that signs displayed on the premises asking customers to leave in a quiet and orderly manner and that he would be happy to meet with members of Dyserth Community Council.

The community council has sent a letter saying it has had numerous complaints from residents and has requested a closing time of 11pm.

The committee has the power to modify, suspend, or revoke the licence.
