Pizza and quiet

The popular student takeaway Mr Pizza has lost its licence to serve hot food after 11pm following complaints of anti-social behaviour.

Green Party councillor David Rogers, who backed local residents at the licencing hearing this week, said the result was “a tribute to the patience of local families who have tolerated late night disturbance for many years.

The Green Party supports local businesses, but in this case the late night licence was inappropriate in a quiet residential area.”

Residents of the Portersfield Road area of the Golden Triangle expressed relief at the decision. Janet Wilkinson, who applied to the council to deal with the disturbances around the takeaway, claimed that noise and anti-social behaviour in the vicinity had “escalated to unacceptable levels”.

Following news of the licencing withdrawal she added “I now look forward to the return of peace and quiet in the neighbourhood”.

    Is this author 14 years old with absolutely zero knowledge on music? Has to be. Two out of three songs are irrelevant. Both by shitty bands. Who paid for this?…

    Should we mourn GCSE poetry?
    Wonderful article! Very insightful and brilliantly communicated. I wasn't aware of this issue before, but this article has really brought it to light for me. Thank you very much!
