A new court date has been set for a decision on a winding up order against the owners of the controversial nightclub Funky Mojoe.

Redbridge council is seeking to retrieve its legal costs in a long-running battle with the bar, which was closed following complaints of crime and anti-social behaviour.

The hearing at the High Court is due to take place on August 4.

Representatives from Funky Mojoe, in High Road, South Woodford, attended the same court last month but a decision was delayed after outstanding issues were found in documents submitted by Redbridge council.

The council will submit the amended documents at the court date next week.

Redbridge council announced in early-June that it will seek a winding up order against the nightclub after the owners lost a High Court bid to overturn a decision to cut its opening hours.

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 but the deadline was missed.

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