Northampton nightclub where two Brent women were crushed to death has closed for good
Parent company of the venue went into administration shortly after the tragedy
The nightclub where two women from Brent were crushed to death in a stampede has closed for good.
Lava & Ignite club in Northampton had its licence suspended after Nabila Nanfuka, 22, of Yeats Close, Neasden, died during the early morning crush on November 8.
The tragedy also claimed another life when Laurene-Danielle Jackson, 19, from Wembley, died on November 8.
Witnesses describe revellers rushing to the exits after an announcement was made that their coaches were leaving.
Further panic is believed to have set in after a fire alarm went off following the announcement.
Following Ms Nanuka’s death, Northampton Borough Council revoked the club’s licence temporarily as part of their investigations.

But on October 17, Luminar Lava Limited, who owned the club, went into administration on October 27, meaning the club licence had lapsed.
At a council licensing meeting held yesterday, Cllr Christopher Malpas announced that representatives of the administrators of Luminar will not be reinstating the licence.
An inquest into the death of the Ms Jackson student will start at Northampton General Hospital tomorrow (Wednesday) at 9.25am.
