Breathalysers have been used outside town centre bars in Scarborough for the first time in a pilot scheme to help stop people who have had too much to drink from getting in. Door staff used breathalyser kits on Saturday night to help them gauge whether drinkers were in a fit state to enter the premises.
The Safer Communities Partnership, which is behind the scheme, says a breath/alcohol reading of three times the drink-drive limit or higher could greatly increase the chances of someone being refused entry.

“Breathalyser readings will help door staff make informed decisions about whether someone should or shouldn’t be allowed entry and should help reduce the flashpoints that are created when people are overly intoxicated.”
The breath-testing kits were used in St Nicholas Street and surrounding areas, where there has been a history of disorder and nuisance fuelled by alcohol. The trial will be repeated on August 9 before a widescale campaign planned for late autumn addressing so-called "pre-loading" - the drinking of alcohol before heading out.
Scarborough is one of 20 Local Alcohol Action Areas - towns that have been selected by the Government to trial initiatives to combat drink-fuelled crime and disorder and the damage caused to people’s health.
