BIRMINGHAM, AL (WBRC) - Birmingham city councilors voted Tuesday to close a controversial club.

Club Continental or the Continental Ballroom will no longer be able to operate. Councilors voted unanimously to revoke the club's business license because of numerous complaints of violence reported to both Birmingham and Homewood police.

One Homewood Sergeant described the club as a "death trap."
