A nightclub which closed after several violent incidents could be converted into 20 one-bedroom flats.

Trinity on Wesley Square in Pudsey shut in 2016 after a number of crimes were linked with the bar including a mass brawl involving 10 men and the rape of an unconscious woman in an alleyway.

The club - which was at one time known as Mode - had a unit inside the former Trinity Methodist Chapel, a Grade II-listed building which closed for worship in 1982. It has also had a number of other uses including as offices, an arts centre and a coffee shop.

Developers want to turn the historic chapel, which dates from 1899, into 20 one-bedroom apartments. The development would also include 60 parking spaces.

In 2015, police called for a review of Trinity's licence after a spate of violent incidents, but it was given a reprieve and allowed to continue operating under new management. It closed permanently a year later.

In one brawl, a man had his jaw broken by an attacker who 'moved like a trained fighter'.

The application is currently awaiting approval from Leeds City Council planners.
