A TOWN centre bar has lost its licence after the discovery of a blood-soaked ‘torture’ room.
Images reminiscent of a Quentin Tarantino movie greeted police when they broke into Bar South in Waterloo.
Blood-soaked towels, a blood-stained knife, a bottle of Parazone bleach and a cooker lighter were found inside..
They were investigating reports that a 20-year-old man found suffering head injuries and doused in paraffin had been attacked in Bar South.
As a result, an emergency licensing hearing issued an interim closure order on June 4.
In calling for the review Ch. Supt. Ian Pilling said: “Blood markings and speckles were apparent on the wall areas of the kitchen and indicated a suspected struggle had occurred.”
Officers also found a blood-stained knife which they said appeared to have been used in a stabbing.
And at a full hearing yesterday (Wednesday July 1) the licence was revoked indefinitely.
