TWO St Neots pubs, one of them incorporating a nightclub, have been ordered to close following police investigations into drug dealing, under-age drinking, assaults and other alleged offences - but no one knows for sure when the closures will actually happen. Huntingdonshire District Council's licensing panel ordered that The King's Head, in South Street, a former coaching inn that incorporates a night club, should shut for eight weeks from Wednesday, April 4, after police complained of a total of 44 offences, most of dealing class A drugs - cocaine and ecstasy - between July 30 last year and January 13 this year. Complaints about the Wrestlers Inn, in New Street, which was ordered to close for two weeks, included seven drug-dealing offences and a serious assault. In addition, the panel ordered that James Lumley, designated premises supervisor (DPS) at the Wrestlers, and his former partner Joanne Hughes cannot be involved in management or employment at either pub. Ms Hughes's father Will, who was barred as DPS at the King's Head, will take over the Wrestlers when it reopens. Punch Taverns, which owns both pubs, and the named individuals have 21 days in which to appeal and technically can continue operations until an appeal is determined. In reality, the King's Head is likely to continue to sell alcoholic liquor until 1.30am on the Tuesday after Easter, when it will close for eight weeks while the owners refurbish the premises and install a new licensee and security regime. The short-term future of the Wrestlers was not immediately clear, but it no longer has a DPS - Mr Lumley has left - and can, therefore, not trade in licensed drinks. When it is open, a personal licence holder must be present at all times and two door supervisors must be in place from 7pm until half an hour after closing time on Fridays, Saturdays and Bank Holidays, the panel ruled. The panel considered revoking the licences completely, but decided against that, because the police had not specifically asked for it, chairman Councillor John Sadler said.
