A LEGAL challenge has been mounted against a council's decision to amend the alcohol licence of a troubled nightspot.
Bosses at Luthers, in High Street, Potters Bar, have appealed to the courts after Hertsmere Borough Council ordered them to provide extra security and CCTV cameras at the premises.
Councillors took the decision at a licensing sub-committee hearing in May, convened at the request of Hertfordshire Constabulary.

But last Thursday, a council spokeswoman confirmed: "Luther's management company is appealing our conditions of CCTV and extra door staff."
