Fair Time At The Bar

Fair Time At The Bar

Police are warning pubs in Blackburn not to open too early ahead of Sunday's MASSIVE Lancashire derby between Blackburn Rovers and Burnley on Sunday.

This is not just a friendly warning or advice, Police are seriously warning pubs not to start serving before lunchtime as they fear allowing excessive drinking before the match at Ewood Park could lead to trouble and those urged not to open before 12.30pm could face serious consequences if they do take note of these warnings.

PC Finley told the Lancashire Telegraph: "A lot of the pubs are showing the game on Sky TV and want to do so in peace.

"The vast majority of licensees co-operate and have a good relationship with us. They have door staff on who instigate a home fans only policy on match days.

"However, if any are caught out, it will be a breach of their licensing conditions, which could result in six months prison sentence or a £20,000 fine.
"

It makes sense as the more you can reduce the risk of trouble breaking out around a high pressure event the better with it understood that the vast majority are willing and able to co-operate with this anyway, which always helps!!

this seems a tad silly to me as what will stop a bunch of Burnley fans entering the pub anyway and causing trouble - regardless of opening times?! 20 doormen wont be able to stop 60 thugs?!?!

They authorities have got to be seen to be doing the right thing though haven't they?? I think we also have to be fair Mr Mikey, who's to say that it might not be a bunch of Rovers fans looking to cause trouble though as well, it's not just down to Burnley fans is it??
