THE Kings Arms on Vale Street in Denbigh will be closed for seven days following persistent breaches of licence regulations over a period of months. 

The premises has consistently failed licensing visits and has been shown to serve alcohol to children on more than one occasion. 

In conjunction with Denbighshire Licensing department, North Wales Police have offered the licenced premises to close for a period of seven clear days from the August 11 instead of formal prosecution. 

Jason Devonport, Chief Inspector for Denbighshire, said: “This premises in Denbigh town centre has consistently breached licensing legislation and despite warnings and support continued to do so, this closure will impact on the business and the licensee and will be seen as a punishment financially.

“We will not tolerate alcohol licensing breaches and we will take strong enforcement action against those that breach and are seen to add to local crime and disorder. We conduct some really good partnership working with licensing teams within the local authority and with trading standards to improve the management of premises that serve alcohol.”
