Representatives of Funky Mojoe were in court yesterday facing a winding up order over £127,000 owed in fees incurred during long-running legal battle.

The hearing took place at the Bankruptcy Court at High Court, but the decision was delayed after outstanding issues were found in documents submitted by Redbridge council.

The council will have to resubmit the documents at the new court date at the Bankruptcy Court, which is yet to be confirmed.

Redbridge council announced earlier this month that it will seek a winding up order against Funky Mojoe in High Road, South Woodford.

The controversial nightclub's owners lost a High Court bid to overturn a decision to cut its opening hours after evidence emerged of crime and noise nuisance.

The club was granted a right to appeal at the Court of Appeal on the condition it paid the £127,000 costs the council had incurred defending its decision by last Friday.

This deadline was missed and the High Court ruling is now final.

Owners of Funky Mojoe could not be contacted and the premises are currently closed.
