Lunch-time strip shows at two Watford pubs have been called off following discussions between police and breweries.

Chief Supt Roy Purton, head of Watford Police, had informal talks with Ind Coope and Trumans Brewery directors on Friday. As a result, shows planned for the Leviathan and Verulam Arms pubs, in St Albans Road, on Sunday were cancelled.

Last week officials from County Hall ruled that stripping did not conflict with the entertainment licences for the two pubs. But Chief Supt Purton said legal problems connected with obscenity laws could arise. He also feared the shows would attract the wrong type of people to Watford.
