City Checks find Door Supervisor Working Illegally


Coming to a City near you

City of London Police and Security Industry Authority (SIA) staff found a door supervisor working without an SIA licence during checks in the City on Saturday night, July 20.

In total, City of London Police Licensing officers, SIA investigators, and HM Revenue and Customs officials visited four premises, checking 17 security operatives and backroom staff.

One door supervisor was found working with a revoked licence. The SIA is looking into it. A further two warnings were issued to door supervisors for failing to notify the SIA of a change of their address which is a breach of licensing conditions.

HM Revenue and Customs were on the operation checking for national minimum wage irregularities and those evading their tax responsibilities. Offences were detected by HMRC officials which will be subject to further investigation.

Inspector Hector McKoy from City of London Police said:

Robson Green Book Signing


Phoenix Security provided security for Robson Green's book signing last Saturday

Star of Extreme Fishing and local man Robson Green was at the Dragon Carp Direct fishing tackle store in Peterlee, County Durham on July 27th.

Robson is one of the most recognisable men on British TV and his angling show, which sees him fly around the globe in search of monster fish, has been a huge hit.

The popular Geordie TV Star was at the fishing tackle store in Peterlee to sign copies of his recent book, which accompanies his latest TV series.

Members of Phoenix Security staff were present during the day, maintaining a safe and secure environment throughout the signing.
