An 18-year-old woman later died on January 2 after being under the influence of drugs at the scene.

On Friday, the venue received a written warning from Glasgow City Council’s licensing board after Police Scotland filed a complaint about the three deaths.

The council says that the warning is not intended to be punitive in nature, but rather to ensure that the issue is addressed to prevent similar incidents from happening in the future.

Heads of SWG3 were told that they must always contact the police if someone is taken to hospital by ambulance from the site.

They were also told that they must continue to take a zero tolerance stance on drugs in conjunction with the site’s harm reduction approach.

In addition, staff must log and store all seized drugs to the satisfaction of Police Scotland moving forward.

A spokesman for Glasgow City Council’s licensing board said: “In circumstances where three young people tragically lost their lives, there were clear grounds for these buildings to be subject to a site review hearing.

“After considering all the information presented at the hearing, the board was of the opinion that it was appropriate to issue a written warning to the license holder.

“In accordance with licensing law, the purpose of a review hearing is to ensure safeguards are in place to prevent future incidents, rather than taking punitive action.

“From the submissions made by the licensee, steps have already been taken to address the issues raised by this review and the licensee has been warned that it must deliver” these commitments now”.

A Police Scotland spokesman added: “We are aware of the outcome of the Glasgow City Licensing Board hearing and will continue to work with our partners”.

SWG3 has been contacted for comment.
