It appears that the organisers of the London Oktoberfest have abandoned their attempt to hold the beer festival in Broomfield Park.

An email sent this morning by Ellie Green from the council's licensing team to people who had submitted objections to the event stated:

"Please be advised that the applicant (Barbican Events Ltd) have today withdrawn this application.

"Therefore no hearing shall be required and the event shall not be taking place."

The news was welcomed by David Williamson, secretary of Friends of Broomfield Park:

"Friends of Broomfield Park are pleased to see that our local councillors listened to and acted on our concerns. We are glad to hear that the license application has been withdrawn as a result of their intervention. But the systemic failures that led to this situation need to be reviewed so that we are not faced with the same again in future years."
