EAST RIDING: Police are adopting a "zero tolerance" policy after a rise in drunken disorder in Snaith.
Officers said there has been an increase in calls to the village in the early hours of Saturday and Sunday mornings.
They are warning anyone found causing problems could be banned from pubs across the village, with offenders also facing fines or prosecution.
A spokesman for Snaith neighbourhood policing team said: "The increase in calls has ranged from people shouting and swearing in the street, to people causing damage and assaulting others.
"The neighbourhood policing team is liaising with Snaith landlords through the Pubwatch scheme and is operating a zero tolerance approach to any persons found participating in disorder in and around the public houses.
"Members of the public are reminded to enjoy their evenings out but to ensure they do not get involved in any behaviour that may be seen as anti-social."
