Pubs warn trouble makers to stay away from Burnham and Highbridge

Pub bosses in Burnham and Highbridge have warned trouble makers to stay away this Christmas or face being banned from all premises in the towns.

Railway InnBurnham and Highbridge Pubwatch has seen 31 licensed premises come together to work with police and the local licensing authority to make a night out in the towns a safer experience.

Around 80 people are currently banned from all the premises for being involved in drink related trouble or violence and the message is to behave or face a very quiet Christmas and New Year period.

Burnham-On-Sea Town Centre Team PC Martin Childs told Burnham-On-Sea.com: "We want everyone to have a good time this Christmas, but not to step over the mark and ruin the pleasure of many more hundreds of people."
