Niche Night Club given green light to continue

Sheffield Council Licensing Committee has decided not to revoke the Niche Night Club licence after a recent stabbing incident led to the premises being temporarily closed. Earlier a group of supporters held a march to campaign for the club to remain open. The venue was closed after five men were injured in an incident believed to have started at the night club. The club will re-open subject to meeting a number of conditions including an increase in security staff and a review of training and security arrangements. The club will also be required to use plastic cups instead of glasses. Sheffield Live! reporter Azz Mohammed spoke to march organiser David Blythen.
