Longs Bar has licence revoked
A BAR in Swindon has had its licence to serve alcohol revoked after being caught serving underage police volunteers on several occasions.
Longs Bar, on Victoria Road, Swindon, has been caught by Wiltshire Police Licensing Officers serving underage volunteers four times since 2010 - with three of these taking place since October 2012.
The test volunteers served were as young as 15.
At a Licensing Committee hearing at Swindon Council today, the premises license was revoked.
There is now a 21-day period where the premises licence holder, Arkells Brewery, can appeal this decision.
The bar is open for business as usual.
