Door­man caught work­ing at a bar with­out a li­cence

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Front Page -

A BOUNCER has been or­dered to pay more than £7,000 costs for work­ing with­out a li­cence.

Scott Lee Green­smith ap­peared at Peter­bor­ough Mag­is­trates’ Court on Wed­nes­day where he pleaded guilty to work­ing with­out hold­ing a valid Se­cu­rity In­dus­try Au­thor­ity (SIA) li­cence. But he pleaded not guilty to break­ing li­cence con­di­tions when he failed to re­turn his re­voked li­cence to the SIA.

Green­smith (32), of Ul­dale Road, Gun­thorpe, Peter­bor­ough was found work­ing il­le­gally in Septem­ber 2011 when SIA in­ves­ti­ga­tors car­ried out a spot check and found him work­ing with a re­voked li­cence at a bar in March.

Dis­trict Judge Ken Sher­a­ton found Green­smith guilty of break­ing li­cence con­di­tions be­cause he failed to demon­strate that he had un­der­taken all due dili­gence to avoid con­tra­ven­ing the li­cence con­di­tions.

He was or­dered to carry out 120 hours’ un­paid work and pay £7,833 costs.

SIA head of in­ves­ti­ga­tion Nathan Salmon said: “Green­smith had his SIA li­cence re­voked and was aware of the SIA’S re­vo­ca­tion process and he con­tin­ued to op­er­ate as a door su­per­vi­sor. By avoid­ing the re­al­ity of his sit­u­a­tion, Green­smith has paid a high penalty. I hope this sen­tence will act as a warn­ing to oth­ers that in or­der to work as a door su­per­vi­sor you must be cor­rectly li­censed and ad­here to the li­cence con­di­tions at all times.”
