Epworth pub applies to extend music licence until 2am
Music and drinking could be allowed to continue into the early hours of the morning after an Epworth pub sought to extend its music licence on Thursdays and Fridays.
The Red Lion Pub, Albion Hill, Epworth, has applied to extend its current operations licence by applying for a separate licence to enable it to play music until 2am on a Thursday and Friday night.
Members of Epworth Town Council discussed the application.
Councillor Iain Bramble said: "I don't think it needs to be open any longer because there will be chaos with more drinking and, with food places open, there will be more litter."

Councillor Richard Hall added: "It's not suitable for a place as small as Epworth."
Councillor Jonathan Whittaker took the view that the town council should be supporting local businesses but suggested midnight was a more suitable time.
Councillor Roz Whittaker said opening until 2am on a Thursday and Friday would be "asking for trouble".
She said: "Midnight should be the cut-off point for music and drinking."
Councillors voted to object to the application to extend licence times. The final say on the application is with North Lincolnshire Council.
