Gloucestershire Cricket Club has reached a compromise with residents over its licence to both sell alcohol and host live music.

Dozens of residents had complained to Bristol City Council with concerns about noise and late-night drinking at the County Ground.

Councillors granted the club a licence after it agreed to concessions.

The club has now reduced its licensing hours and will often restrict the performance of live music.

It also agreed to restrict the sale of alcohol to indoor areas except on match days when it must be sold from a marquee or similar structure.
