Met ask for revocation of O2 Academy Brixton’s license

O2 Academy Brixton

The Metropolitan Police have asked the council to revoke the venue’s license, in what could be the end of O2 Academy Brixton.

Gaby Hutchinson, 23, and Rebecca Ikumelo, 33, were slain on December 15 when supporters without tickets attempted to join a gig by Nigerian musician Asake at the south London club.

Lambeth councillors suspended the venue’s licence for three months, and a decision on whether to reopen the premises is likely at a licencing meeting soon.

The Met Police said in a statement: “On Monday January 16, the licence of the O2 Academy Brixton was suspended for three months.

On April 14, the Met Police submitted an application for a review of (the) premises license to Lambeth Council and will be seeking a revocation of the license. This matter will be decided at a future council sub-committee hearing on a date to be confirmed.”
