A BAR where violence erupted outside on St George's Day has been banned from allowing punters to drink outside.

Trax Café Bar, in Mill Row, Bexley Village, was told not to let customers outside with drinks by Bexley councillors, last Thursday.

St George's Day celebrations soured at the pub in April when hundreds of people standing outside Trax were caught up in a fight before turning on police who tried to disperse the scene.

A police car's window was smashed and bottles were thrown into the air as police arrived en mass.

Bexley officers closed nearby pubs and some in Sidcup and throughout Bexleyheath, starving the crowd of alcohol.

The pub was re-opened after a temporary suspension of its licence called for by police.

The pub's management have 21 days to submit an appeal to Bexley Magistrates.
