DRINKERS have been banned from sitting outside all day and all of the night at a famous Fortis Green boozer.
Planning chiefs have turned down an application from the new owners of the Kinks' favourite watering hole, the Clissold Arms, to turn a car park into a pub garden after residents complained it would ruin their Waterloo sunsets.
The decision follows a massive campaign from people living around the pub who bombarded Haringey Council with objections to the scheme.
Malcolm Matthews from Orchard Court, which backs on to the car park, said: "I'm delighted with the decision, it will make a hell of a lot of difference. It's a small victory for local people."

Fortis Green councillor Martin Newton said: "With the granting of longer licensing hours to licensed premises the noise implications of pub gardens on nearby neighbours must always be carefully considered.
