Owner of gentleman's club in Australia where Manchester-born dancer died says he was a 'hands off' boss at the time

The owner of a gentlemen's club in Australia where a Manchester-born dancer's body lay for hours has told a hearing he trusted managers to run the business while he focused on another venture. Owner of the Dreams Gentlemen's Club in Melbourne Salvatore Aparo told a liquor licensing hearing he is now a hands-on owner, running the club with his fiancé.

Withington-born fitness instructor Stacey Tierney, then 29, was working at the club in 2016 when she died having taken a cocktail of drugs in a private manager's lounge a week before Christmas.

Stacey told friends she 'didn't enjoy it, but the money was good', an inquest into her death heard. More than 30 hours passed between Ms Tierney entering the room - the only one not monitored by cameras - and her body being taken from the venue by ambulance officers.

The club is facing a Victorian Gambling and Casino Control Commission inquiry into the suitability of Mr Aparo to hold a liquor licence.

Mr Aparo told a hearing this week that until Ms Tierney's death, he had been a 'hands-off' operator and trusted others to manage the venue. He said he was running a construction business and had largely delegated the running of the venue to trusted managers, dropping in a few times a week and doing weekly phone calls.

Mr Aparo said the fallout of Ms Tierney's death had damaged the business' reputation and put his own plans on hold. He described it as a 'very emotional rollercoaster'.

While he accepted a 'lot of responsibility', it could only go so far, he said. Asked if he put his trust in the wrong people, Mr Aparo said: "We all learn by our mistakes."

Mr Aparo denied suggestions the club operated after hours and outside its

sex sessions. The couple, from Melbourne, recently moved from a share house into their own apartment and thought they'd no longer have to worry about "keeping it down".Speaking with Mamamia, they admitted they'd been looking forward to be able to walk around the house starkers and make the most of "loud, joyous sex" whenever it took their fancy.And they were enjoying their new freedom until a neighbour posted them a little note after they'd been particularly rowdy during a late night romp.The note read: "Just a small request to please consider that we are all living in an apartment block when making considerable noise quite late at night and in the early hours of the morning."We have been woken up numerous times to very loud screaming and we are all working different hours, some with very early starts, so sleep is important."The couple were initially quite taken aback by the politeness of the note, having stated they have seen much more blunt versions that have gone viral online.

Fernando Alonso could 'replace Sebastian Vettel' at Aston Martin after Miami GP absence
Formula One season, rumours of changes on the grid are continuing to mount with the future of veterans Fernando Alonso and Sebastian Vettel facing plenty of scrutiny.Spaniard Alonso is being tipped to leave Alpine to replace Vettel at Aston Martin, with Oscar Piastri the most likely to take the vacant spot at Alpine while Vettel could hang-up his driving gloves following an illustrious career that has seen him star with Ferrari and Red Bull.Alonso, in his second year back in F1, has encountered some bad luck this season with retirements in Saudi Arabia and Imola, while a hydraulic problem cost him a podium finish in Melbourne, while Vettel has struggled in the Aston Martin car - leading to growing speculation he could look to retire.Despite his impressive drives and standing within motorsport, Alonso's spot at Alpine isn't secure due to the rise of Formula 2 champion Piastri, who is a test driver for the French team and is unable to drive in F2 this season following his win - with manager Mark Webber not keen for him to remain on the sideline for another year.Alpine understandably do not want to lose Piastri and could allow Alonso to leave to free-up a seat, which could trigger a domino effect with Aston Martin snatching his services while Vettel could bring down the curtain on his career.
