Men forcibly removed from premises after scuffles break out

Jet Set in Harlesden High Street, could be shut down immediately if an application by Brent Police is given the thumbs up by the council next Thursday.

Officers have made EIGHT arrests outside the club over two weekends last month during street brawls involving revellers in the early hours of the morning.

In one incident on April 19, a policeman was assaulted by a clubber and in another a baseball-wielding man was apprehended by officers alongside four other fighters.

Police requested a fast-track review of the club s licence after they had to return to the club the following weekend to forcibly remove a number of guests when scuffles broke out.

In a statement in support of the police s application, a resident wrote that after 4am: The clientele congregate outside of the club for at least an hour, shouting at each other.

The management and door staff seemingly do nothing to move them on (or clear up the vomit that the clubbers kindly leave in the area too).

They added that police had regularly been called following trouble at the premises over the previous 18 months and said: It is simply not fair that my weekends (and I expect those of many other local residents) should be ruined on a regular basis.

A spokesman from Brent Council said: Councillors heard an application from the Metropolitan Police at the licensing meeting of April 29, relating to Jet7Set club on the grounds of serious crime and disorder.

The club first came to the police s attention after a reveller was shot in the head in 2008.

Valdemar Andrade, who was 26 at the time, was acting as a peacemaker during a row when he was gunned down by Craig Robinson and Daniel Simpson, both from Harlesden.

During their trial in 2009, the jury heard how Mr Andrade defied the odds by surviving his injuries, but now needs around-the-clock care.

Antonio Martins, the Jet Set owner, denied there was trouble at the club.

He told the Times: We are still going to be open as usual, there are no problems whatsoever.

This is all a misunderstanding.

A final decision on the club s fate will be made by Brent Council on May 21.

Southport nightclub bouncer says Formby man had …

A bouncer who struck a man outside a Southport11 nightclub who later died after suffering brain injuries says he had threatened to stab him.

Stuart Humphreys, 38, made contact with Scott Sheard during an altercation outside Destination Bar on October 17, 2009.

The incident left Mr Sheard suffering permanent brain damage and the 26-year-old, of Freshfield Road, Formby22 , died in January 2012.

Prosecutors say Humphreys, of Kingfield Road, Walton, poleaxed Mr Sheard with a punch.

But the doorman told Liverpool Crown Court he hit him with the heel of his hand because he believed Mr Sheard was about to punch him.

Humphreys said Mr Sheard had tried to take bottles outside on three or four occasions.

He said he asked him to leave them on a table, which irritated him .

He said Mr Sheard was quite clearly drunk and on the last occasion refused, so he took two bottles off him.

He said: I ve sort of pushed him, ushered him backwards, which was my fault, I should have been more diligent, and as I ve done that he s stepped backwards off the step and stumbled.

He told the jury there was a confrontation at around 5.45am, when Mr Sheard was very angry .

He said he clenched his fists and had to be held back by his friends, including Luke Rigby, who was also aggressive.

Humphreys said Mr Sheard wanted his bottles back or to return inside to drink them and he tried to apologise to Mr Rigby for pushing his friend off the step, which wasn t my intention .

The bouncer said he decided not to allow him back inside as it wouldn t have ended well .

He said: I was threatened to be stabbed on a couple of occasions by them.

I think that threat came three or four times.

I think it could have been both, maybe it was just from one of them.

Humphreys said he didn t actually see a knife.

Nigel Power QC, defending, said: What was said about a knife?

He replied: Why don t you just get out of the f***ing way before I start cutting you, you f***ing p***k , that sort of thing.

Humphreys said things became extremely heated .

He said: At that point I believed he was about to throw a punch at me.

He was constantly shifting with his hands out of his pockets, clenching and making fists.

He shifted his weight down onto his right leg, which I took to be he was about to throw a punch.

He said Security Industry Authority guidelines recommended using an open palm strike rather than a clenched fist.

Humphreys said he had not intended or expected Mr Sheard to fall over.

He said he wanted to see if he was okay but did not call 999 or help him because others were doing so, and for him to get involved would have been inflammatory .

He said he told police he slapped Mr Sheard when in fact it was a palm strike because he wanted to make clear it was not a punch and that he was distressed and upset.

He said: I didn t expect and it certainly wasn t my intention for him to be injured in any way

Mr Power asked why he told police Mr Sheard had threatened to stab him but later said Mr Rigby had.

He said: I m not certain.

It was coming that thick and fast.

Humphreys denies manslaughter.
