The Oceana nightclub in Kingston has had its licence revoked weeks after a fatal stabbing on the premises.

Police made the successful application at Kingston Borough Council’s licensing committee yesterday following what they described as crime and disorder problems at the venue in Clarence Street.

Jamie Sanderson, from Southall died after an incident at Oceana on October 25. A man has been charged with his murder.

The owners of the nightclub now have 21 days to lodge an appeal.

Kingston Borough Commander, Martin Greenslade, said he was pleased with the decision.

The Met Police said 15 assaults were reported in and around the building between August 1 and October 31 this year

“A culture of criminality has built up around the club, which has been unable to bring the level of crime down to a comparable level with other clubs in London.

“This is despite the ongoing support and advice from officers. The continuing high volume of crime has formed the basis of our argument for the revocation.

“This shows that police will take action against licenced venues when associated crime levels are untenably high. I would urge all licence holders to work closely with police and other relevant agencies to ensure all appropriate steps are taken to cut offending.”

A ‘studio apartment’ in Old Street was snapped up for £1083 per month. Doesn’t sound too bad? The room is less ‘apartment’ and more ‘single bed crammed between the desk and the sink’ in a tiny space.
