A NOTORIOUS nightclub had its licence revoked following a string of violent scenes.

Eva's nightclub, situated on the corner of the Broad Street Mall shopping centre, had its rights to sell alcohol suspended in August after a brawl.

On August 5 the club was the scene of a mass fight, which resolved in 200 ravers getting thrown from the premises.

Reports then emerged of bouncers taking selfies as the police dog unit arrived, with drunk party-goers throwing drinks and verbal abuse at the crowd.

Now the club has officially closed for business after councillors revoked its licence at a meeting on Tuesday September 5.

Eva's had no legal representation at the meeting, instead the director Peter Norbury represented the club.

The first item of discussion at the meeting was CCTV footage of a man who was slashed with a knife while another man was unconscious on the floor, and a second incident where one man threatened another with a bottle.

Footage was then shown of a fight breaking out on the dancefloor of the club, as one man was seen holding an object that officers believed to be a knife, due to the fact the crowd of people near him walked away from him.

Police body-cams showed evidence of clubbers shouting abuse at officers as a fight broke out, causing police to form a line outside the club.

The committee also heard that the door staff were so uninterested to the point that they allowed entry to someone who displayed no identification, just a bank card.

A spokesman for Reading Borough Council said: "Following the police submission of a summary review in August, and the subsequent interim suspension of Eva’s licence on August 10th, the Licensing Committee met last night (Sep 5) for a full review hearing.

"At the hearing the committee revoked the licence. Secondly, it decided to keep in place the interim suspension. This means that the suspension would remain in place in the event of an appeal of the revocation of the licence.

"The committee’s decision was taken in view of the fact this was a summary review based on serious crime and disorder, as well as significant breaches of licensing conditions which undermine the licensing objectives – particularly protection of the public, the prevention of crime and disorder and the protection of children from harm."
