Bars In Weymouth Call Time On Late Night Drinking
7:57am 6th January 2014
Seven bars in Weymouth have now stopped serving alcohol at 5am.
It's a voluntary agreement which will run for six months, as councillors try to prevent problems when all night drinkers meet residents and visitors using the sea front early in the mornings.
Geoff Petherick from Weymouth and Portland Borough Council says the 6 month trial is voluntary, and he's keen for more to join.
He says one of the hidden benefits is cost savings on staff at times when there are normally very few or no customers.
Premises which have joined so far are The Nook, The Lazy Lizard, Actors, Dolce Vita, Goldfingers, Dusk, Tuatara-Bar/The Closet
