Concorde Fish Bar slated over licence loophole

A famous chip shop rapped for serving fish suppers after closing time has been given a battering for attempting to exploit a licensing loophole to overturn previous sanctions.

The Concorde Fish Bar was slammed by police and licensing chiefs for trying to “circumvent” an earlier ruling to slash opening hours after being convicted for selling takeaway food after the shop had closed for the night.

The late-night chippy in Home Street – said to be suffering “catastrophic” losses after being forced to close at 11pm because of its record – sought to double up as an off-sales outlet with an amendment to increase its food trading times until the early hours. The move would have superceded the earlier decision to cut its opening hours.
