A judge has today overturned a council decision that stooped a new betting shop from opening in Newham.
The council had rejected Paddy Power's license for the premises in February, saying it would attract crime and anti-social behaviour. It was also against the use of 'fixed odds' betting terminals.
“We are disappointed and will decide what happens next. The law needs to be changed so that our residents do not have to suffer anti-social behaviour connected to betting shops.”
