Police are appealing for witnesses after gunshots were fired outside Vauxhall's Colosseum Club on Sunday December 11 at 4.30am. Shots were fired near the entrance and hour and a half before the club was due to shut.
A pair of us recently had the pleasure of having our drink spiked. We know women are often targeted but didn't expect it to happen to us down the pub on a Tuesday night. Basically one of us left his drink alone, was surprised to find it still there, drank some of it, felt quite off it, stupidly then gave drink to friend and left the venue and was soon very ill. Same thing then happened to said friend (who was sober before) who had finished the drink.
So, do watch out. It's apparently quite common and nowt to do with the Eagle which is a great venue with really good staff. Watch your drinks! Some very sad people out there.

It's a remarkable story of how this guy bravely stood up, pulled his trousers up and took his case all the way to the Supreme Court so he we could all drop them at will. We're being light-hearted but think about what doing that involved...

A former squatting community across the road from Fire (now a very middle class wanna be gated community) has long moaned about drug f*cked clubbers from Fire using their retired hippy commune as a car park/ public highway/ toilet. However, it appears that when the club shut the low footfall in Bonnington Square caused a HUGE rise in residents being mugged, cars robbed and general mayhem.
"Continue reading" to find out how they're coping.
