The company behind controversial nightclub Funky Mojoe was offically dissolved yesterday following a High Court decision.

Redbridge council will now attempt retrieve the £127,000 cost of a long-running legal battle with the company, listed as D & D Bar Services.

The bar in High Road, South Woodford, was closed following complaints of crime and anti-social behaviour.

The company's challenge to the decision ended up in the High Court earlier this year but was unsuccessful, with costs awarded to the council.

Owners then missed a deadline to appeal.
