A BOOKSELLER has been banned from trading at a makeshift stall in Whitecross Street in Clerkenwell.
Dermot Ryan, who had been selling secondhand books on the pavement without a licence, had his application for a licence turned down by the Town Hall on Thursday.
On the same day, a tattooist fined £1,500 earlier this year for a catalogue of health and safety breaches has had his licence revoked by Islington Council’s licensing regulatory committee.
Edigijus Grigalius who practices in the Nag’s Head Market in Holloway, had admitted 19 breaches of his licence at Highbury Magistrates’ Court in May.
A visit to his Art Speed tattoo parlour by environmental health officers in January revealed that Mr Grigalius had allowed another tattooist to operate without checking if he had hepatitis B vaccinations or knowing his address.
