A NIGHTCLUB is set to close for six weeks as it is forced to step up security measures.

Club Lush, in Sudley Road, Bognor, was under threat of closure after a string of serious assaults, fights and rowdy behaviour at the venue.

But managers have now reached an agreement with the police.

They have agreed to operate a strict ‘no ID no entry’ policy and employ fully trained door staff from an external security company.

The sale of alcohol will stop half an hour earlier at 2am, instead of 2.30am.

CCTV will have to be installed.

Jean Irving, force licensing and public safety manager, said: ‘It enables the club to remain open but means they will have to adhere to strict new conditions in order to keep their licence.’

Club Lush will be closed for six weeks – effective from the end of the three week appeal period – during which time the measures will be put in place.
