A NIGHTCLUB hosting a foam party outside which a man was shot in the leg and another suffered a head wound should not have even been open, councillors have been informed.

Detectives are still probing the shooting in Abbey Road at 3.10am on Sunday June 29 which happened after patrons at The Lounge nightclub in Unimix House - holding a fifth anniversary night for UK Foam Party - spilled onto the street following the discharge of some sort of substance inside.

The Metropolitan Police has requested Brent Council’s alcohol and entertainment licensing sub-committee review the licence of the venue on Thursday.

Supporting statements submitted by the police said: “On police arrival, there was a large crowd of mostly IC3 [African/Afro-Caribbean person] male and females who had been in attendance at Unimix House, which is a warehouse which has been rented out for a club night.

“The event was a foam party which had around 450 people in attendance.

“On speaking with informants on the scene, it is believed that, just before police were called, the foam was let off as planned, and as it was being done so, tear gas has been set off by people unknwon.

“After this a fight has broken out and a shot has been fired.

“From this, a fight has ensued between two males, possibly Suspect 1 and Victim 1, which has then spilled out onto the street and another shot has been fired.

“Victim 1 has received a bullet wound to the right knee area.”

Officers discovered a second man lying barely conscious on the pavement nearby with a cut on his right arm and an open wound on the back of his head.

He had suffered a broken jaw and witnesses told police “five males punched and attacked the victim with bottles before kicking him in the head while he was on the ground”.

Brent Police's licensing team member Nicholas Mortimer wrote in his application for review: “On March 2, a new premises licence application was received from The Lounge, Unimix House, Abbey Road.

“The application was for a cafe/restaurant and was supported by a professionally-produced architects plan, and the licensable activities applied for were the sale of alcohol, regulated entertainment and late night refreshment.

“On the night of June 28 and prior to be furnished as a cafe, this premise was used for a foam party.

“This was without the knowledge of the relevant authorities and was not a use agreed as part of the application process.

“It was not even known at that time that the premises had opened.

“On Monday June 30, I spoke to the premises licence holder, who stated he was so shocked by the incident that he had already town up the licence and would formally surrender it to the London borough of Brent.”

The venue’s licence, granted only in May, was suspended on July 3 by an emergency alcohol and entertainment licensing sub-committee meeting pending the full review hearing.
