Westminster City Council licensing committee has given the go ahead for a violent film which 'could incite crime' to be shown at the London Film Festival, reports Today (p7).

Committee chairman John Bull said although he personally was repulsed by the film's catalogue of violent killings, he felt it would be wrong to ban it from the festival. 'At a festival everything should be shown,' he said.

The British Board of Film and Video Classification, which has not yet decided whether to give the film a certificate for general release, asked the council to let the film be shown so it could gauge reaction.
