‘Behave yourself on Mad Friday’, warn police

By Dave Gudgeon

EXTRA police patrols will be on duty across west Cumbria’s towns and villages tonight to cope with drunken revellers.

And the hard-hitting message to those heading for the pubs and clubs on what is known as ‘Mad Friday’ is ‘behave or be banned.’

Chief Superintendent Ian Cardwell, police commander for west Cumbria, warned offenders could be banned from all licensed premises under the Pubwatch scheme.

He said last night: “This is a time of year when people should enjoy themselves – but some are tempted to use it as an excuse for misbehaviour.

“The Lock Em Inn scheme offers a warm welcome to anyone foolish enough to get involved in disorder.”

“We have worked hard with licensees and door staff to ensure that people enjoy themselves safely.

“Where people do commit offences we will be taking firm action. This could include being banned for all pubs and clubs in the area under our Pubwatch scheme.”

The ‘Lock ’Em Inn’ is Cumbria Constabulary’s cells at the Workington police headquarters.
