In light of the recent news that Fabric will remain indefinitely closed due to two reportedly drug-related deaths that occurred in the past nine weeks, Sadiq Khan has made a statement urging Islington Council and the Met Police to work with Fabric to find a solution that both protects clubbers' safety and keeps the club alive.

From Jamie Jones to Groove Armada, Daniel Avery, Plastician and Chase and Status, over the past couple of days a range of internationally-famed DJs tweeted their support for the club, calling on London's new mayor to help #SaveFabric. "The cultural significance of institutions like @fabriclondon should never be underestimated," tweeted Daniel Avery, "The club has supported underground music on a large scale every single weekend for over fifteen years".

Khan, who has been an avid supporter of London's new night tube and vowed in his campaign that he would help to protect the city's nightlife, responded to a tweet from DJ Artwork, stating "I'm urging #Fabric, the Met & Islington to find an approach that protects clubbers' safety & the future of the club."
