Sheffield strip club Spearmint Rhino has had its licence renewed, despite several objections.

A Sheffield Council licensing committee agreed to renew the sexual entertainment licence - first granted to the venue on Brown Street in 2012 - yesterday.

There had been several objections to the application made by members of the public.

They said that the venue undermined the cultural quarter of the city close to galleries, workspaces an art school and a student union.

Others said that women walking around the area at night felt unsafe and there were two centres that supported vulnerable women in the area.
