THE former owner of a Tamworth lap dancing club must appear before court charged with 10 breaches of licensing laws – or face a warrant for her arrest.

Jo Anne Doyle, aged 38, failed to appear at Burton Magistrates' Court for a hearing on Monday without prior notification to the court.

She was the owner of controversial Tamworth club Players Lounge, in Bolebridge Street, which closed last year.

The charges she is accused of, which allegedly did not receive authorisation under the Licensing Act 2003, are:

Allowing performances of dance, in that dance performers were in close physical contact with customers, on December 17, 2011

Allowing the retail sale of alcohol from the premises – and failing to produce CCTV recordings to police upon request on December 17, 2011

Keeping the club open to the public beyond the licensable hours of 3.30am on December 17, 2011

Allowing performances of dance, in that private dances were conducted beyond the licensable hours of 3am, on December 17, 2011

Allowing the sale of alcohol from the premises beyond the licensable hours of 3am on December 17, 2011

Opening the club to members of the public with no door supervision on the premises on December 21, 2011

Allowing dance performers to come in close physical contact with customers on December 24, 2011

Being unable to produce CCTV footage upon request by the police in December 24, 2011

Allowing the venue to open and trade without door staff on March 30, 2012

Knowing, and allowing that, public areas were not monitored by the use of CCTV whilst open on March 31, 2012.
