Door supervisors in bars and clubs in Liverpool are being issued with breathalysers as part of a new campaign called “Say No to Drunks”, which aims to stop people who have had too much to drink being served further alcohol.

Bar staff who serve people who are drunk could be issued with a £90 fixed penalty notice and if it goes to court the fine could be up to £1000 on conviction. Premises could also have their licence reviewed.

Around 25 bars and clubs in Ropewalks have agreed to take part in the pilot scheme.
