A decision on whether to reissue the licence of a Sheffield strip club has been pushed back, according to the chairman of Sheffield City Council’s licensing board.

It comes after a report was submitted to Sheffield City Council in which private investigators claimed they had witnessed dancers performing sex acts at Spearmint Rhino.

In the report, which is said to have been compiled by two ex-police officers, members from the Women’s Equality Party said strippers breached their licence.

The group, which has called for the club to be shut down, revealed the details of the acts in a full council meeting in which some elected members walked out, saying it was “too graphic”.

A review of the licence, which happens annually, had been set for next week.

The council said representatives involved in the hearing have been made aware of the decision to postpone it, but that no new date has yet been set.

Spearmint Rhino has previously said it imposed strict rules at all of its establishments and was investigating to see if they had been broken.
