A NIGHTCLUB has beefed up its security by installing a metal detector on the door.

Delano's, in East Street, Bromley, set up the airport-style arch on June 14 to stop people bringing knives and weapons into the club.

The move follows the club's introduction of unbreakable polycarbonate glasses and a system of saving mugshots of clubbers onto a computer as they enter.

Club manager Oggy Lozo said: "The current climate is that more people carry knives now. People have welcomed this with open arms because they want to go somewhere safe.

"These scanners could actually be the future for everyone. It seems the only reasonable option for owners to take."

The club decided on the weapon scanners after consulting the police and Bromley council's licensing officers.

On entry, every member will have to pass through the sensitive arch before being patted down by security staff.

PC Andy Waddington, Bromley Police's Licensing Officer, said: "I am particularly pleased with the stance taken by Delano's and fully support them in these initiatives.
