A MAN from Royston has had his personal alcohol licence revoked in what is believed to be the first case of its kind in Hertfordshire.
In May, 30-year-old Curtis Todd, of Kneesworth Street, appeared at Luton Crown Court and admitted an offence of assault.
But police said that during the hearing it was not said that he had an alcohol licence.
But police said this week: "As a result he was prosecuted for offences relating to his failure to make the court aware that he was a licence holder, and to notify the licensing authority of his conviction for assault."

Sgt Clive Reader, who was involved in the case, said: "I am sure that if the court had been aware at the time that his licence would have been revoked then.
"We have worked with the licensing department at North Herts District Council to bring this case to a successful conclusion.

"I believe it sends a strong message that anyone breaking licensing laws will be dealt with robustly," he said.
Chief Insp Geoff Camp said: "The vast majority of licensed premises in North Herts operate professionally and in close liaison with the constabulary and the licensing authority.
"Where they or individuals associated with the trade step out of line, we respond fairly, but robustly," he said.
