Arches nightclub reinstate over 18s policy

A Glasgow nightclub is opening its doors to clubbers over 18 - months after introducing a strict door policy following the death of a schoolgirl.

The Arches nightclub introduced a strict over 21s policy for its events back in February following the death of Clydebank teenager Regane McColl.

The 17-year-old died after taking a ''mortal kombat'' tablet at Glasgow nightspot.

The Arches said on their official website today, "The Arches is reinstating its over 18s clubs policy from Saturday, May 3, 2014, with valid ID required for entry.

"We are working closely with Police Scotland in adopting many operational recommendations which we believe will provide a safer clubbing environment.

"The Arches operates a strict zero tolerance drugs policy and is committed to protecting the health and safety of its customers, whom we urge to act responsibly at all times."
