A LICENCING panel has given the go-ahead to extend an alcohol clampdown on QPR matchdays.
On Monday (12), Hammersmith and Fulham Council council agreed to ban glasses and glass bottles three hours before and after kick-off, and prohibit the sale of booze before 11am matchdays at the The Central Bar, West 12 Shopping Centre, O'Donoghues in Goldhawk Road and The White Horse in Uxbridge Road
In addition, O'Donoghues and The White Horse were told to improve their CCTV and also had further conditions attached to their licences, which specify door supervisors should be in attendance for certain QPR matches and that drinking outside is banned for three hours before and after games.
The decision came weeks after new rules were put in place at The Springbok pub in South Africa Road.
Councillor Victoria Brocklebank-Fowler, chairman of the licensing sub-committee, said: "The aims of these decisions is to ensure that irresponsible drinking by football fans is stamped out in H&F and we hope these licensing decisions can help eradicate that problem. We have already made Hammersmith & Fulham a controlled drinking zone and will continue to stand up for the silent majority of our residents wherever we can."
