Warrington Guardian: Man caught drunk dancing on River of Life fountain Man caught drunk dancing on River of Life fountain

A 22-YEAR-OLD man was given a fixed penalty notice after being caught drunkenly dancing on the River of Life fountain in the early hours of this morning.

Officers arrested the man after spotting him on CCTV cameras at 3am on Bridge Street on top of the memorial for Tim Parry and Johnathan Ball after the 1993 IRA bombing.

He had earlier picked up a bin on Sankey Street and thrown it down Bridge Street.

A spokesman added: “Officers asked him to put the bin back but he refused to do so and became abusive towards officers.”

Stop the sale of alcohol after 9 pm!
Reduce the number of outlets selling alcohol!
Enforce the fact that licencees should stop selling alcohol to those persons who have already had enough to drink!

Why isn't there a drinking licence?

They license everything else, IMO at the age of 18 you apply for a photo drinking licence, this servers as ID for pubs and shops, no licence no drink, just like driving licences you have points on it, if you cannot handle your beer then you get it revoked. that way us that like to drink and socialise can do so without expensive taxes on alcohol, and those that become idiots after a drink cannot buy the stuff....its not rocket science.

I,ve been saying the same thing for years SAC, The licencee has responsibilities, We didn't have all this trouble when we was younger and we had around 150 pubs in Warrington.

That is an absolutely superb idea, you have to drive (reasonably) well and safely to earn - and keep - the privilege of a license, if the same was applied to drinking alcohol it could be used to stop so much of the moronic behavior we have to put up with.

Richiepooh stand for election !!!

I worked in town centre pubs for years...and trust me if someone wants a drink they will do whatever it takes to get another drink...even going into toilets and taking leftover half full bottles off the side...these people are adults and shouldn't need babysitting! People Licences won't work either...it would finish the pub industry off as the police will become over power crazy and start revoking like they do now over other things...it would cause more unnecessary trouble for Door staff and barstaff,who already get enough grief for saying NO...

You seem to be abdicating all responsibility and thus encouraging the sale of alcohol to the overindulgent imbibers. Sounds like you are also suggesting there is no way to stop the diabolical behaviour of these inebriated folk as a consequence. All it would take to reduce the drunken behaviour in the town centre is to suspend the licencing of the licensee or the premises, although I think that this maybe a short-term measure.
