A controversial strip club which closed in March due to coronavirus restrictions may not re-open its doors.
Spearmint Rhino, which has been on Brown Street in Sheffield for 18 years, has surrendered its sexual entertainment venue licence. The club won a high-profile battle to renew the licence for a six-month period last September after a campaign by women's equality campaigners. The renewal was backdated from April, when the UK was in lockdown. The club has also transferred its alcohol licence to another operator, the council said.

The footage was showed to the council last year in support of calls to have the club's sexual entertainment licence removed. But pro-campaigners, including dancers, marched through Sheffield calling for the club to stay open, with some supporters comparing the footage to "revenge porn".
Both sides gave passionate speeches over an eight hour hearing, and the club was allowed to keep its licence until April. Charlotte Mead, of Sheffield Women's Equality Party which has campaigned for years against the club being in the city, said: "It's really good that they've left Sheffield after so long campaigning for them not to be here in our community right next to [Sheffield Hallam] students' union.
