    [​IMG]Woman becomes first person banned from EVERY pub and club in the country


    A woman has become the first person to be banned from buying or drinking alcohol anywhere in England and Wales.

    Laura Hall, 20, was issued with a Drinking Banning Order - nicknamed Booze Asbos - which bars her from entering any pub, club, off-licence or bar.

    The two-year order also bans Hall from buying alcohol at any other establishment or shop, carrying it in an unsealed container or drinking it in a public place.

    Police applied to magistrates after Hall was convicted of breaching an Asbo imposed for drink-related anti-social behaviour.

    She has been convicted of a series of public order offences, and had flouted bans from pubs and clubs through local Pub-Watch schemes in her home town of Bromsgrove, Worcestershire.

    Kidderminster Magistrates' Court heard yesterday that Hall faces a £2,500 fine if she breaks the conditions of the order.

    Sergeant David Roberts, of West Mercia Police, said: 'There have been some Drinking Banning Orders issued already but this is the first to be issued on a nationwide basis.

    'It bans Laura Hall from drinking or buying alcohol in any licensed premises across England and Wales. The conditions will also help to protect the public from the anti-social effects of Laura's behaviour.'

    Officers applied for a DBO rather than another Asbo because Hall would be at risk of prison if she breached it again.

    'We want to rehabilitate her rather than send her straight to jail, and hope the banning order will help Laura address her problems,' he said.
