British Transport Police's Crackdown On Drunk Revellers Heading To York


8:36am 13th September 2013

A crackdown's being made on drink-related disorder in York, thought to be caused by large groups of people travelling from the North East.

It's thought up to 5 thousand people have been making the train journey from Teeside every Saturday to drink in York's pubs and clubs.

Now the Safer York Partnership's Operation Erase - involving police in the city and British Transport Police - is aiming to put a stop to drunken behaviour from those revellers.

Plans include deploying police horses and requesting no alcohol is available on Saturday morning's Transpennine trains.

Local train operators are also calling for a hike in ticket prices.
