A popular south Belfast bar was the focus of a joint raid on Monday morning by both PSNI and customs officers.

Four PSNI landrovers, a police van and three cars believed to be from Her Majesty’s Customs and Revenue (HMRC) arrived at the Hatfield House on the lower Ormeau Road shortly before 12 noon.

A PSNI spokeswoman said the search related to licensing.

“Police carried out a search under the Licensing Order (NI),” she said.

HMRC has not commented on the incident so far.
