Lancashire Police have said they are "disappointed" with Blackpool Council Licensing committee's decision not to introduce a restriction on sales of alcohol in the town.
Assistant Chief Constable Mark Bates said:
The leader of Blackpool Council says the decision not to introduce a restriction on the late night sale of alcohol in the town is "disappointing".
Cllr Simon Blackburn said:
Blackpool Council’s licensing committee has voted against the introduction of an Early Morning Restriction Order on the sale of alcohol in the the town.
The order would have seen a 3am restriction on the sale of alcohol.
Cllr Adrian Hutton, Chairman of the Licensing Committee, said: “After careful consideration of all the evidence the committee has voted against the introduction of an Early Morning Restriction order.
“I would like to thank everyone who took the time to speak and provide us with information in relation to this decision.”
