DRAGON Kiss is set to have its licence reviewed on Monday - two months after the police’s attempts to reduce crime at the bar were thwarted by a councillor’s blunder.

The nightspot, in Weston’s Regent Street, has seen more than 130 crimes committed inside or outside the premises over the past two years, leading to calls for changes to be made.

Avon and Somerset Constabulary asked North Somerset Council to review the licence last year but an error in publicising the meeting online revoked the new conditions set by the authority.

Then in September the police’s attempts were further frustrated by Cllr Roz Willis who appeared to indicate she had a fixed mindset before hearing representations from the Mu family, who own the bar, resulting in a second hearing being abandoned.

The measures the police are keen to introduce include the use of plastic bottles and not allowing anyone to re-enter or enter the premises within two hours of its 2am closing time.
