Is this what the youth in Britain and Europe is spending their their energy, money, efforts and innocence on?
* Council officials launched an official investigation after the video went viral
The young girl, pictured, was lured into performing multiple sex acts after organisers offered a free drink although she thought a holiday was on offer
Playhouse bar in Magaluf and entertainment firm Carnage have been ordered to pay £43,500
* The bar and Carnage have also been ordered to close for 12 months
* Carnage have said they are planning to appeal the councilís decision
Council officials in Magaluf, Spain have ordered the closure of the bar where a British girl was filmed performing sex acts on 24 men for a cheap cocktail.
Local police say they have identified Playhouse as the bar where the video was taken.
The owners of the bar have been hit with a £43,500 fine they have been told to pay with controversial entertainment firm Carnage.
Both Playhouse and Carnage have also been told they must shut for a year unless they can successfully appeal against the council decision.
The pair, formally notified on Thursday of the fine and closure orders, have been given 15 working days to appeal.
A council spokesman said: íThe town hall has shown it is acting in a scrupulous legal fashion.
íWeíve acted only when a full and conclusive police report was in place.
íWe havenít acted on the spur of the moment based on the sole evidence of a video posted on the Internet.
íI think the message is clear. The town hall wonít tolerate activities of the kind featured in the video under any circumstances.
íWe will use all the laws we have available to us to ensure there is no repetition.
íPlayhouse and Carnage now have 15 days to defend themselves and I am sure they will do so because a 12-month closure could make anything think about closing up permanently.í
The spokesman added: íThereís nothing to stop Carnage opening up again under a different name if the council decision prospers.
íBut if they chose to do so theyíll have to be aware of what theyíre up against.
íA lot of bars and hotels they have been working with might not be so keen to work with them in the future.
íThe fine of Ä55.000 euros is a joint fine they can pay between them but the closure orders affects them both for the full 12 months.í
Manuel Onieva, mayor of the municipality of Calvia which covers Magaluf, ordered a police investigation earlier this month after the video of an 18-year-old British holidaymaker performing multiple sex acts on men inside a bar went viral.
He spoke of his disgust at the video and warned then bars face closure if they were found to have broken the law.
The council said it was fining Playhouse and Carnage and closing them down for 12 months because they had failed to comply with laws which made them responsible for ensuring under-age children had not witnessed the sordid events from inside or outside the bar.
It also said there had been a clear breach of the law because a pornographic show had taken place in an establishment licenced to operate as a music bar.
Council licensing boss Juan Feliu said: íThe law states quite clearly that under-age children cannot participate in or witness pornographic shows.
íEstablishments like Playhouse have a responsibility to make sure the law is upheld and we say the bar and Carnage have not adopted all objective measures to guarantee that was the case.
íThe sole possibility that there were under-age children present is a more than sufficient reason to sanction according to the law.
íPlayhouse has windows for instance and from outside you can see whatís happening inside.
íThe police report is very comprehensive and the town hall obviously feels it has enough evidence to name Playhouse as the bar where the video was taken.í
The happy sponsors to this garbage fest:
Local officials have revealed that seven firms have applied for new íbar crawlí licences - including Carnage
Seven firms thought to include Carnage have applied for new town hall licences to run the controversial events.
Guides have to wear special jackets identifying them from punters and pub crawl groups are limited to 50 people.
Opposition councillors in Magaluf say the decision to regulate them is sending out the wrong message and insist the answer if the resort is to clean itself up, is to ban them.
Magaluf was branded a lawless party resort after the shocking sex video emerged.
The wonders of debauchery and binge-drinking:
New videos of British holidaymakers having sex in the street have been posted on the Internet since.
Majorcaís top politician Jose Ramon Bauza branded Punta Ballena, the most brash part of Magaluf, as í500 metres of shameí earlier this week.
Mayor Manuel Onieva has promised tough action to keep it íordered, organised and safeí but pledged not to turn his back on the area because so many local families depend on it for their livelihood.
Calvia town hall said in a formal statement said: íCalvia town hall has notified the owner of Playhouse in Martin Ros Garcia Street and those responsible for the firm Carnage Magaluf of a sanction of 12 months closure and a Ä55,000 fine.
íIt notified them on Thursday afternoon after determining, following a full Calvia local police investigation, that it was in the Playhouse bar that multiple sex acts filmed on video and posted on the Internet earlier this month, took place.
íThe incidents took place in mid-June according to the police report.
íThe town hall also holds Carnage Magaluf responsible, because it was the organiser and promoter of the activity that took place during the pub crawl when the illegal act was committed.í
Carnage director Paul Smith, who refused to apologise over the sex video, said last night he would release a statement early next week.
Asked if he would appeal, he said: íWhat do you think? Yes, of course.í
The owner of Playhouse, which is run under a company name, could not be contacted.
