Police back terms on Rangers licence

Police called for conditions to be imposed in the renewal of the liquor licence for Southampton Rangers, according to Superintendent James Howard.

Their formal objection was based on “several documented breaches of the Liquor Licence Act”, Mr Howard said.

Mr Howard appeared before the Liquor Licensing Authority hearing last Thursday on behalf of Stephen Corbishley, the Commissioner of Police.

The BPS called for conditions to be imposed on the establishment, which has had its licence renewed.

Mr Howard said: “In its official ruling, the Authority has now granted the licence renewal for Southampton Rangers Sports Club — with several conditions — which the BPS supports.

“In the interest of public safety, the BPS will continue to meet and work with Southampton Rangers Sports Club and all Members Clubs to eradicate any antisocial behaviour, disorder, gang activity and violence from their establishments — should it be present.

“However, the BPS also remains committed to responding to any acts of criminality at liquor licensed premises and reporting any breaches of the Liquor Licence Act to the Authority.”
