Youngsters from Ilkeston’s Kirk Hallam estate have been banned from a pool club at the Nottingham Castle pub — after a warning from licensing officers.

The club was set up by landlord Trevor Davie to try and tackle anti-social behaviour around Queen Elizabeth Way after repeated arson attacks on his premises.

Youths ranging from 14 to 18 years old had been using the pub’s pool room, which serves no alcohol and is separate from the rest of the premises, since late last year. Local residents and parents reported a marked improvement in behaviour of local teenagers.
