Since 2005 Brits have been able to drink much later than the traditional 11pm. The aim was to introduce a cafe culture and reduce crime. Unfortunately however, the binge drinking culture is still prominent and alcohol related crime now tends to happen even later, taking up police resources and causing disturbances in town centres. mingle trend conducted a representative survey to ask Brits if they want to see a ban on 24 hour drinking with pub closing times legislated again.
67% are in favour of the ban whilst only a third of Brits are against restrictions on pub closing times. Despite young males being at highest risk from alcohol fuelled crime, only 57% of men want the law to be reversed compared to over three quarters of women.
