Pubs and bars in York could be charged a levy for late night opening. City councillors will decide whether to press ahead with public consultations on the scheme. It would affect bars which serve alcohol between midnight and 6am.

The proposal has been prompted by a change in the law. The money would be spent on night time policing and other measures to reduce anti-social behaviour.
