Familiar face behind bar.

A TROUBLE-hit pub has a new licensee at the helm.

Victoria Bell, who ran O'Keefe's bar in High Street, Gateshead, for six years until she left for pastures new three years ago, is back.

The 29-year-old took over the pub when the previous landlady surrendered her licence in advance of police action to curb disorder complaints about the premises.

Police say they received numerous complaints about general disorder and after-hours drinking sessions at the pub over the past few months. They were in the process of applying for the licence to be withdrawn, when the licensee voluntarily surrendered it.

Jane Bell, 26, who has joint tenancy of the pub with her sister Victoria, said: "It was always a good pub and we never had any trouble when we ran it before.

"We are determined to keep it trouble-free."
