A south London council, having been accused of racism, is now being sued for £9 million. The claim is the latest setback to hit Southwark council's planning department in a four-year feud which began after the council failed to consult a group of nightclub owners about a nearby housing development. According to one anonymous council official, the nightclub proprietors have always claimed this is because they are black, and that the construction has put them out of business.
