Round-the-clock licences 'will call time on last time orders'

An end to the 'double madness' - people downing drinks before last orders and then all pouring out of pubs together - started today as the Government introduces new alcohol laws.
Pubs, clubs, bars and off-licences can now apply for new round-the-clock licences, which would come into force in November.

They form the biggest shake up of the licensing laws in 40 years and, for the first time, give powers to the police and residents to oppose licences.
