A city fish bar has had its chips when it comes to serving late-night food, after a series of complaints about rowdy behaviour at the takeaway.

The Concorde Fish Bar will not be allowed to open into the small hours, after Edinburgh’s licensing sub-committee heard how residents living near the Home Street chippy had their lives turned upside down by noise coming from it into the small hours.

One fed-up neighbour is said to have resorted to sleeping in the bath because the music was so loud, while another had to be prescribed tranquillisers as a result of the stress of living near the chip shop.
