Late night drinks a cause for con­cern

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Your Telegraph -

PEO­PLE’S so­cial lives have changed so much in re­cent years and li­cens­ing laws have been up­dated to re­flect that.

Fam­ily life and work­ing shift pat­terns are so dif­fer­ent to what they were a gen­er­a­tion ago, peo­ple are com­ing and go­ing at all hours of the day and night.

So it is not un­usual to see night­shift work­ers in a pub at break­fast time, and evening work­ers un­wind­ing in a bar well into the early hours. Most peo­ple now take it for granted. But the fact that an off-li­cence in a busy res­i­den­tial street on the Wel­land es­tate wants to stay open to sell booze un­til 4am is alarm­ing.

A city cen­tre late bar is one thing, but does any­one want peo­ple wan­der­ing near their homes in the mid­dle of the night in search of drink?
