Warning signs have been deployed in a Leicestershire town to clamp down on the numbers of people drinking in alcohol-free areas.

Highly visible signage – which flashes electronically when an area is undergoing a ban – have been erected in Loughborough following complaints from residents about public drinking, the BBC reported.

In addition to the warning signs, police patrols will be stepped up as the town readies itself for the end of the academic term and the start of festive celebrations – traditionally a peak time for drinking.

Mike Green, of Leicestershire Police, was quoted by the news provider as saying: "Having a large visual sign should remind people it is illegal to drink in the streets and, as a result, reduce incidents of alcohol-fuelled crime and disorder.

"These signs will be a great way of enforcing the alcohol-free zone in the town which was put in place to improve and maintain the quality of life for local residents," he added.

Recently, public signage was put up in the Offmore area of Kidderminster to deter rogue traders targeting residents.ADNFCR-2754-ID-800289354-ADNFCR
