A Buddhist centre in Nottingham has sent a petition to the city council opposing a new bar because noise may interrupt meditation classes. The centre said it could be forced to relocate if the licence was granted for the bar on St Mary's Gate.

But the bar's managing director David Caddick said "impact from the premises will be negligible".

He said he would work with the Buddhist community to alleviate any problems, adding it was a food-based operation.
