Comment - Liquor laws

A NEW clampdown on anti-social drinking in public places is to be introduced across Wigan borough tomorrow.

If that sounds too draconian for some law-abding folk’s liking they should be reassured that anyone having a friendly and sociable tipple won’t be affected.

As usual in such circumstances, the only people who should be wary are those whose use of alcohol turns them into a public menace.

It makes things much simpler for there not just to be designated zones dotted around the place rather than one consistent policy. Hopefully it will give Wiganers a bit more peace.
