Ascot bosses have pop at fizz drinkers
RACE-GOERS at posh Royal Ascot have been hit with a “one bottle of champagne rule” and could be breathalysed on the way in.
Organisers have promised to search hampers to root out illicit booze.
Staff will have breath testers to prevent drunks buying more alcohol.
There will also be 20 sniffer dogs patrolling toilet queues to identify punters carrying cocaine to snort in the loos.
The Queen’s favourite meeting begins on Tuesday with 300,000 racegoers due over five days.
Ascot organisers hope the one bottle of fizz rule will reduce rowdiness.
Chief executive Guy Henderson said: “We want to pre-empt incidents arising from excess alcohol consumption.”
