Police thank the public after pubs reopening weekend passed without any significant alcohol-related incidents

WEST Mercia Police have thanked the public for its response to the reopening of pubs and bars across Worcestershire.

Officers said the majority of licensees had gone to great lengths to ensure they could operate safely for both customers and their staff and the weekend passed without any significant alcohol-related incidents.

Assistant Chief Constable for Local Policing, Rachel Jones, said: “It was great to see people enjoying themselves sensibly, following social distancing guidelines.

“We attended some minor disorder incidents across our force area but generally we were really pleased to see people respecting the restrictions that are still in place.

“I’d like to thank everyone for the support and understanding they have shown throughout this period and continue to show as we move into a new kind of normality.”
