Shirebrook gets public drinking order

Related Stories

An entire Derbyshire town is to be covered by an order to limit public drinking and anti-social behaviour.

The move to include all of Shirebrook came at the request of a local anti-social behaviour team, including the police and town council.

The market town of more then 10,000 residents had previously seen smaller designated public place orders (DPPOs) but these will be replaced.

A DPPO allows police to arrest people who refuse to stop drinking on request.

The order, which covers public areas, was approved by Bolsover District Council and will come into force on 23 May.
