Drunks given Hull city centre alcohol bans
TWO drunken troublemakers have been banned from drinking in the city centre.
Stephen Ede, 53, and Louis Garmston, 19, have been given drink banning orders after being arrested on nights out in Hull.
It is the second order for Ede, who is now banned from entering pubs or clubs in the city centre at all times.
PC Keith Lamplough, of Hull's public order and violent crime team, said: "The main priority is to protect the decent, law-abiding majority from such behaviour and deal positively with those who act inappropriately when in drink."

The orders, handed out at Hull Magistrates' Court this week, take the total number of drink banning orders handed out in Hull to 97.
Ede, of Hermes Close, east Hull, was given a 12-month drink banning order in April last year.
Despite staying out of trouble while the order was in force, Ede was arrested on August 23 after shouting and swearing at police in Alfred Gelder Street, city centre.
He later admitted being drunk and disorderly.
PC Lamplough said: "Stephen Ede has a very long history of drink-related offending.
"When he was on his first order, he did not commit a single offence, indicating the order was very much of benefit in curbing his behaviour. However, since it expired, he has shown a further order is necessary.
"I hope this sends out a strong message that just because a person has already had a previous order it does not exclude them from receiving another one should their conduct when in drink merit it."
Garmston, of Thurlston Close, Bransholme, admitted being drunk and disorderly in Paragon Street, city centre, on August 27.
He was arrested after running towards another man with his elbow raised.
PC Lamplough said: "Garmston did not oppose the application and accepted his behaviour was unacceptable and down to being very drunk.
"He was apologetic for his actions and said he welcomed the order as he hoped it would serve to keep him out of further trouble.
"I hope this young man does now consider his future behaviour when in drink, and now realises what he may consider as high- spirited boisterous behaviour can, in fact, be quite intimidating and frightening to other members of the public."
Garmston is banned from entering city centre pubs and clubs between 7pm and 7am on Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays, Sundays and public holidays.
Both Ede and Garmston are banned from being drunk or having alcohol in their possession in the city centre.
Magistrates fined Ede £35 and Garmston £50. Both were ordered to pay £85 costs and a £15 victims' surcharge.
