A pub has secretly reopened as a bondage club – and town hall chiefs are powerless to shut it down.
The Rifle Volunteer in Stockport is at the end of a quiet block of terraced homes just yards from a park. From the outside it still looks like a pub – but inside it is a thriving fetish establishment which boasts on the internet of offering ‘mistress worship’, ‘punishments’ and ‘the finest dominatrix in Manchester’.
Neighbours are demanding the club be closed. But the council say the change to bondage club did NOT need planning permission.
