Binge drinking crackdown launched

PUBLISHED July 8, 2004

A summer campaign to tackle loutish binge drinkers and reduce alcohol-fuelled violence begins on Thursday.

On-the-spot fines, sting operations and anti-social behaviour orders will be used in town and city centres.
Seventy-seven areas in England and Wales are the focus of the eight-week crackdown, which is a joint initiative between the police and government.
