£80 fines for bar staff serving drunken customers

Bar staff who serve drunken customers could be hit with an £80 on-the-spot fine from next week, the Government announced today.
Police minister Hazel Blears revealed that a new fixed penalty notice - designed to crack down on pubs and clubs which encourage binge drinking - will come into force on Monday.

Another new on-the-spot fine will also take effect for children caught buying alcohol, with each ticket costing under-18s £50 and under-16s £30.
