Steinbeck & Shaw shut early and police called after crowd disturbance

A popular nightclub had to shut its doors early after queue troubles resorted to police being called.

Steinbeck & Shaw, in New Dover Road, was shut over an hour early after people began to push one another while waiting in line for entry.

Police were called at 11.21pm Monday night ‘following reports of a disturbance’.

A spokesperson for Kent Police said: “On arrival there were concerns for the safety of a large number of people who were trying to gain entry to the club.

“Kent Police worked with the venue to ensure public safety by dispersing the large crowd.”

No arrests were made and enquiries into the incident are ongoing.
