The cost of policing drunken revellers in our town centres on Friday and Saturday nights should be paid for by the pubs and clubs themselves and not tax payers. That's the idea behind a new late-night levy being discussed by councillors tonight.
There are more than 650 licensed premises in Windsor, Maidenhead and Ascot - with six nightclubs open until 4am.
Thames Valley Police say two thirds of violence in Windsor is down to the night-time economy, costing up to £1m a year in police resources.
The new levy would cost bars and clubs up to £4,400 a year. But as Mel Bloor reports, bar owners say they'll be unfairly punished and it could lead to closures.
Interviewees: David Hatch, Bar owner & Chair of Maidenhead Pubwatch, Cllr David Hilton, The Royal Borough of Windsor & Maidenhead.
