MP Daniel Kawczynski hits out at Shrewsbury lap dance club proposal

Daniel Kawczynski said plans to transform the Source Vodka Bar in Barker Street into a 'sex encounter establishment' were not right for Shrewsbury.

He said: "Shrewsbury town centre is not an appropriate place for these establishments, they have a place in big cities like London but I don't think Shrewsbury is the right place. I think lap dancing is demeaning."

Shrewsbury Town Council leader Peter Nutting also attacked the plans. He said: " It doesn't fit in with the high quality restaurants and night-life we have in Shrewsbury."

But bar owner Rob Bywater said he had received no complaints during a monthly trial night last year and now hoped to run them on a weekly basis.

The town council planning committee is to discuss the proposal on Tuesday night.
