A council has refused to allow a takeaway to open later after residents objected.
Bim’s, in Ilford Lane, Ilford, asked Redbridge Council’s licensing sub-committee for permission to stay open until midnight from Sunday to Thursday and 01:00 on Friday and Saturday at a meeting on 24July.
But local residents claimed the restaurant has caused issues with littering and anti-social behaviour, which they said would get worse if it opened later.
They also alleged the restaurant breached its current licence by staying open well into the evening, until 04:30 on one occasion.
The business has posters displayed which warn customers not to engage in anti-social behaviour, although residents argued they have not worked.
The council committee said: "The refusal of the applicant to accept any responsibility for the activities of his customers outside of the premises gives us no confidence that this licence can be granted without undermining the licensing objectives."
The restaurant will continue to operate at its current hours, closing at 23:00.
