NOTORIOUS pub at the centre of a gangland murder hunt and a police drugs bust has been shut down.

20:02 |

Glasgow's Cambridge bar - where hood George Redmond was shot dead and his gang crony John McGuire injured in 2008 - has lost its licence.

Manager Kirsty Learmont was due in front of Glasgow City Council officials this week but failed to show up.

Crime Scene can reveal attempts were made to track her down but the locks securing the boozer have now been changed and she won't be back. An underworld insider revealed: "Her time's up. The police were unhappy at the number of incidents at The Cambridge and wanted things to change.

"She was called in front of the licensing court to explain herself but it seems Kirsty has no intention continuing in the bar trade, at least not at the Cambridge.

Thugs...Redmond and pal McGuire
"The locals will be hoping they get their pub back, trouble free."

Gangland thug Redmond and pal McGuire, both 42, were gunned down outside The Cambridge - then called The Waldrof - in October 2008.

Redmond was shot in the back as he talked on his mobile outside the bar, while McGuire was badly wounded as he smoked a cigarette.

McGuire was taken to the city's Royal Infirmary in a serious condition but later discharged himself after being moved from intensive care.

A police investigation has so far failed to make any arrests.

Drugs cops also raided the pub in December and two men were charged.

This week a notice from Norfolk- based landlords LT Pub Management went up warning that anyone trying to enter the premises would be reported to the police.

At the licence hearing on Monday, lawyers acting for the firm explained they had tried to track down Learmont.

Their soliticitor said: "An attempt was made to telephone her, but she hung up. I fully understand the board's position, but my clients accept that things have been ongoing at this pub that are completely unacceptable.

"I think Learmont has realised the time is up for her at least."

Board acting chairman, councillor Andy Muir, said he appreciated the landlord's position, but insisted the company was also responsible for the premises and those running it. He added: "This is a very serious matter. With Miss Learmont not appearing we cannot make a ruling now."

He continued the case until the next licensing court sitting to see if she does make an appearance.

No-one from LT Pub Management was available for comment.
