Greggs Beats Met Ban on Sausage Rolls


Greggs has won its battle with the Metropolitan Police over plans to sell sausage rolls and other hot food late at night in its flagship Leicester Square store.

The bakery chain had applied for a 24-hour licence for the store, but the Met objected, saying it was concerned about the potential for increased crime and disorder.

However, a licensing sub-committee of Westminster Council has now approved the application, saying it was satisfied that Greggs had put in place adequate measures to prevent problems.

These include the installation of CCTV, the employment of security guards and the removal of seating from the store.

The decision is a victory for Greggs, which has been keen to offer late-night food to customers in the busy Leicester Square area.

It is also a setback for the Met, which had argued that the extended opening hours would lead to an increase in crime and disorder.

The decision is likely to be welcomed by many people who work or live in the area, who will now be able to get a Greggs sausage roll at any time of day or night.

It is also a boost for the bakery chain, which has been facing increasing competition from other food retailers.

The decision is likely to set a precedent for other businesses in the area, which may now be more likely to apply for late-night licences.

The decision is also likely to be welcomed by the local council, which is keen to see the area become more vibrant and attractive to visitors. is brought to you by "The Living Brand"
