JUSTIN Bieber will not face any action from Greenwich Council over his late-running show at London’s O2 Arena on Monday, a spokesman for the Royal Borough said.

In response to press reports of a £300,000 fine - which would equate to £10,000 a minute - the Royal Borough of Greenwich clarified their position in a statement.

A spokesperson told the Huffington Post: “The Royal Borough of Greenwich has not taken any action against the owners of The O2 in relation to Justin Bieber’s recent performance, as no breach of our licensing conditions took place.

“It is simply a contractual issue between AEG and the artist involved, as there is no requirement for performances to finish by 11pm.”

Bieber upset many young fans by appearing on stage at 10:20pm, well after his scheduled stage time. The Canadian singer turned up two minutes early for the second night of his London run yesterday.

Greenwich Council say that “it is an urban myth” that acts are fined for over-running at the former Millenium Dome, one of the world’s most popular venues.
