A Rush Green pub has had its licence suspended following a man was seriously injured in an incident after England’s World Cup tie against Colombia on July 3.

Havering Council’s licensing committee made the decision to not allow The Havering Well, in Rush Green Road, to stay open after a man was seriously injured at the pub in the hours after England’s last 16 tie.

The pub’s designated premises supervisor (DPS) Jay Fleming – the man in charge of operating the venue safely – has since been charged by the Metropolitan Police with GBH in relation to the incident.

On Monday morning, the pub’s management filed paperwork with the council naming a new DPS.

Both Mr Fleming and Maria Summerfield, the applicant for the pub’s licence, have also been banned from entering the pub as an additional condition.

The meeting heard that the pub’s CCTV was not working at the time of the assault, as management claimed water damage had forced cameras to be removed.

Pc Belinda Goodwin, of Havering’s licensing team, told the meeting that suspending the premises’ licence was the only way to ensure improvement of the pub’s management.

She said: “Police cannot trust [Ms Summerfield]] or any of her close staff to manage the premises licence.

“We would respectfully ask the committee to consider a suspension of the licence – this would allow us the time to fully investigate the events of that fateful night and ensure the public are protected.”

The Metropolitan Police served a notice on the pub at 3.56pm on Thursday, July 5 - meaning it was not allowed to open this weekend for England’s quarter final victory over Sweden.
