Police will fine anti-social revellers

Police in South Yorkshire want revellers to enjoy themselves but behave as today sees many workers finishing for the Christmas break and heading for the pub.

So called mad Friday has caused problems for police in recent years as instances of drunkenness and anti-social behaviour increase. But officers in Rotherham have warned they'll use fixed penalty notices to deal with troublemakers and increase patrols throughout the town so the public feel safe.
