A DENTON pub is to have its licence reviewed after an incident that saw two people injured.
A ‘large scale disturbance’ outside The Angel on Hyde Road has led Greater Manchester Police to write to Tameside Council.
And the role of the licensee and supervisor around the events of Friday night, June 7, have been called into question.
One man received a six inch long and one inch deep cut to his back and a puncture wound to his left eye, also sustaining a blow to the head with an unknown instrument.
Another man was hit over the head with a glass, giving him a cut to the ear, two puncture wounds to his arm and a two to three-inch cut to his back.
In the letter, seen by the Correspondent, Greater Manchester Police say: “Greater Manchester Police believe that the current Premises Licence Holder (PLH) and Designated Premises Supervisor (DPS) have not upheld the licensing objectives of their licence – specifically prevention of crime and disorder and public safety.
“The PLH/DPS have not upheld the conditions of the licence, when on Friday 7th June 2019 whilst both the PLH and DPS were not present at the licensed premises, a large scale disturbance occurred directly outside The Angel public house.
“Patrons who had immediately before the disturbance been inside The Angel public house as customers then spill out from the front doorway of the premises and into the carriageway of Hyde Road.”
A consultation period has now opened, with a hearing into the Angel’s licence expected after it expires on Thursday, July 11.
And police say they are now investigating what they describe as two Section 18 Assaults after the incident, which occurred just before 11pm.
