A pub suspected of being a 'hub for criminals' has been saved from closure after CCTV footage corroborated the landlord's account of events of a night when 'substances' and a knife were found.

The Queens Hotel in Monsall had its alcohol licence temporarily suspended after 87 bags of 'substances' and an eight-inch knife were found at the pub.

A 'large amount' of alcohol was also found in the toilets, and in a nearby storage container, and a walkie talkie was found near the entrance of the pub.
