Paramedics were called to The Loft, based on the third floor of a building on Commercial Road, on December 19 and treated a number of people for injuries.

Tower Hamlets Police also attended and afterwards used anti-social behaviour powers to bring a hearing to the magistrates court.

Tower Hamlets Council supported the Met's application for closure. Thames Magistrates Court also heard there had been drugs seized from the bar during a previous visit by the authorities. The court granted the closure notice.

Owner of The Loft, Husshan Uddin, was also found guilty of allowing smoking in an enclosed space and fined £2,000 as well as being ordered to pay £2,500 in costs.

"It is good to see that our system to police these offences are working effectively."
