A venue on the outskirts of Birmingham’s vibrant gay village has had its license revoked by the city council after a shooting outside.

The incident took place on Saturday 4 February outside Second City Suite, located on Sherlock Street across the road the road from popular gay venue, Eden.

Birmingham City Council’s licensing committee revoked the venue’s license after councillors heard of an “absolute lack of control” at the venue when a 30-year-old man was shot at a funeral wake.

The committee said that the cause of the "serious crime and disorder" originated from "wholly deficient security arrangements" and "management failings" at Second City Suite.

Two men, aged 43 and 24, were arrested on suspicion of attempted murder.

Two more men, aged 18 and 22, were detained on suspicion of assault and another two, aged 26 and 31, were held on suspicion of firearms offences.
