Fabric nightclub has reached an agreement with the London Borough of Islington to reopen with strict new conditions.

The new conditions added to the Faringdon club’s licence will ensure a zero tolerance approach to drug possession, consumption and sale within the club.

Teh club’s closure by authorities followed the death of two 18 year old men who were able to conceal drugs on their person before entering the club. 

In a joint statement with the council, Fabric said it accepted its searching and drug consumption and drug dealing procedures were insufficient. 

The new measures include new I.D. scanners, enhanced searching, covert surveillance, life-time bans for drug posession or for anyone trying to buy drugs in the club, enhanced monitoring and external auditing for compliance against procedures, improved lighting and additional CCTV, a new security company, with persons under 19 years not permitted. 

Fabric will re-open once the authorities believe the club has complied with these new conditions.
