Yeovil Pub Watch Set To Ban Yeovil Football Club Chairman From All Establishments For Violent Behaviour.
Yeovil Pub Watch are set to ban Yeovil Town Club Chairman Martin Hellier.
Hellier, the Chairman of The Hellier Group and the town’s football club, was involved in a violent fracas in the family pub, the Hungary Horse, a Greene King establishment known as the Bell.
Hellier was caught on mobile footage taken by witnesses in the establishment at the time of the violent attack.
The footage clearly shows Hellier leaning over the man he has assaulted before being removed from the public house by other regulars at the pub.
Now, regulars of public houses in the Somerset Town want him banned from all establishments, citing it as anti-social behaviour.
On the Yeovil Pub watch website, it states:
Welcome to the Yeovil Pubwatch messaging & data sharing portal for Yeovil Pubwatch members. Yeovil Pubwatch operates with the aim of reducing crime & anti-social behaviour in our area.
Global247news spoke with a spokesperson for Greene King, based in Suffolk, who confirmed that they were already aware of the incident whilst expressing that they under no circumstances tolerate violent behaviour in their family establishments.
Now, residents of the market town are calling for Yeovil Pub Watch to step up to the plate and back up their words with action.
A local pub landlord, not associated with the Greene King public house incident, said:
‘ This is precisely what the pub watch scheme is for. We have very few pubs in the town anymore, and we don’t wish others enjoyment ruined by thugs, whoever they are. I am a scheme member and fully expect the culprit to be banned from all pubs in the area.’
He finished, ‘Meanwhile, licensing regulations could be potentially reduced at Huish Park due to Hellier’s actions and his forthcoming hotel plans at Yeovil Court.’
