A pub in Oundle is to have its licence suspended after police raised concerns about drug dealing and violent incidents there.

The Rose and Crown, in Market Place, Oundle, was subject to a licensing review on Monday, October 7, which resulted in a two-week licence suspension.

The operators have three weeks to lodge an appeal.

Over the past 12 months police have been called to a number of incidents at the pub, involving drug dealing, drug use and violence.

Sgt Mark Worthington, the force lead for licensing, said: “A number of conditions had already been added to the license, and these have been reinforced by yesterday’s review.

“These actions demonstrate the force’s commitment to tackling alcohol-fuelled violence, disorder and anti-social behaviour, not just in Northamptonshire’s larger towns but wherever there is an issue in the county.”
