BNP licence bid

THE British National Party has made a second bid for an alcohol and live music license for its summer festival due to take place in Denby next month.
Last month the party members walked out of a licensing meeting discussing whether to allow live music and alcohol at the event after Derbyshire Police raised late objections to it taking place.
Now a smaller application has been made, to enable the party to sell alcohol in a beer tent at the site on Codnor Denby Lane.
But police have again said they will object to the license as they still have concerns opponents of the British National Party may target the event.
If the new license was granted it would mean the the tent must not contain any more than 499 people and cannot remain open for more than 96 hours.
Event organiser Dave Shapcott said: “This license would just be for the marquee, not the event as a whole. I know the police are objecting again but we don’t understand why.”
Amber Valley Borough Council confirmed it has received a notice from the British National Party but only the police can object to the proposal and they have until Wednesday morning to do so.
