THE nightclub in Northampton where a Neasden student was crushed to death has had its licence suspended.
Northampton Borough Council ordered that the Lava Ignite nightclub should have its license suspended for 28 days, pending a full review by the council's licensing committee.
It comes in the wake of the tragic death of 22-year-old Nabila Nanfuka, in the early hours of Wednesday, who was caught in a crush caused by clubbers stampeding to exit the building.
She had been studying leisure and tourism at Northampton University.
Northampton Council's licensing sub-committee heard evidence from Northamptonshire Police to request the suspension of the nightclub’s licence.
In a statement, the council said: "The Licensing Committee has decided that; due to the severity of the incidents reported, the loss of life and the number of serious injuries, the only viable course of action is to Suspend the Premises Licence."
Meanwhile the club has posted a statement on its website, saying: "The club management and staff are cooperating fully with the local police to find out exactly what happened and meanwhile, the club will be shut for the foreseeable future.
"The thoughts of everyone at Lava Ignite are with the families of those involved at this time."
Anyone with information is asked to call Northamptonshire Police on freefone number 0800 096 0095.
