    Iconic London Nightclub Fabric Shut Down Over Drugs Despite 150,000 Petition

    One of the UK's most famous clubs is shut down by Islington Council despite 150,000 signatures to keep it open.

    One of Britain's most iconic nightclubs - Fabric - has been shut down after its licence was revoked amid concerns over drug use.

    The news was announced early on Wednesday morning, despite a petition to save the club received 150,000 signatures.
    London Mayor Sadiq Khan said he was disappointed at the news.

    "London's iconic clubs are an essential part of our cultural landscape," he said.

    "Clubbing needs to be safe but I'm disappointed that Fabric, Islington Council and the Metropolitan Police were unable to reach agreement on how to address concerns about public safety.

    "As a result of this decision, thousands of people who enjoyed going to Fabric as an essential part of London's nightlife will lose out."

    He said London had lost half of its nightclubs and 40 per cent of its live music venues over the last eight years.

    "This decline must stop if London is to retain its status as a 24-hour city with a world-class nightlife".
