Case 130 - Nightclub needs to undertake carpark repairs after Prince Harry visits

Issue

A press story has reported that a nightclub, frequented by Prince Harry, had to undertake £1200 worth of repairs to the outside area following a health and safety officer's visit.

Panel decision

This story appears to be a real myth - we have checked with the Local Authority who confirmed that they last visited this nightclub in 2011. They have not made any request for resurfacing so it is difficult to understand where or how this “elf n safety” story arose other than simply to gain further publicity for the location.
