Christmas Cards Sent Out To Troublemakers

People banned from bars and clubs in Portsmouth are being sent special Christmas cards telling them to stay away from them.

About 100 cards are being sent out.

It's all part of efforts by the Portsmouth Business Crime Reduction Partnership to stop fights and other problems with alcohol.

Inside the card reads;

"You have either a Banning Notice or Exclusion order under Operation DrinkSafe.

Your actions this year have led you to being unable to enjoy the Christmas spirit with your friends in bars and clubs in the area of Portsmouth.

Have a safe and happy Christmas."
The Cards are being sent out as a reminder that bad behaviour on night’s out isn’t tolerated and certainly not relaxed even at Christmas.

This will make people think twice before acting irresponsibly.
