Famed London nightspot Fabric will shutter this weekend after the drug-related deaths of two teenagers last Saturday and on June 25.
The club posted the following statement on its website:
For the past 2 years fabric has operated without incident but tragically in the past 9 weeks two 18 year old boys have died as a consequence of drug overdoses.
In order to understand how this has happened we have agreed with the police and other agencies to suspend our operation whilst we investigate. The club will therefore be closed this weekend.
We will make a further statement next week but in the meantime for anyone who has purchased a ticket for the club this weekend, we have instructed Resident Advisor to refund all ticket purchases.

Over the past three years, Fabric has struggled to maintain its license amid increasing pressure from the Metropolitan police and Islington council over drug-related incidents. More on this breaking story as it develops.
