THE new owner of a pub in Rhyl which re-opened last month has said the premises will be used to film part of an upcoming crime documentary to air on Amazon Prime.

Freddy Tierney, who has taken on The Glanglasfor Club, said the pub will be used for an interview with former gang leader, Charlie Seiga.

Previously the leader of Liverpool’s “Jelly Gang”, Charlie, now in his 80s, has written a series of crime books inspired by his own life experiences.

Having been a petty thief in his teens, his idea of using explosives to crack safes cemented his place in a criminal gang, before he later turned to armed robbery.

Freddy said: “I think it’s going to be a two-parter documentary on how crime has changed.

“Most of the documentary will be filmed in Liverpool, but they’re going to do a little interview (with Charlie) in the pub. I’m hoping that will happen in the next five to six weeks.

“I thought it would be good advertising for the pub, as well. It’s certainly not going to do the pub, or Rhyl, any harm.”

The Glanglasfor Club, just off the town’s High Street and affectionately known as “The Glan”, shut its doors in early November 2022, but welcomed back customers on August 21.

Freddy, whose whole family hail from Rhyl and who runs an e-cigarette stand in the town’s White Rose Centre, was determined to keep alive a “community pub”.

He has leased out the pub to Sam Irving, who is also running his own “Combat Academy” business at the premises.
