Shop's bid to extend alcohol licence to 10pm

THE owner of a Southampton shop wants to extend the hours he can sell alcohol.

Best One in St Mary Street currently has a licence to sell alcohol until 8pm.

But Ahmad Khushdil has applied to the city council to extend that until 10pm.

He will go before the council’s licensing committee on July 31, but Hampshire Constabulary has objected to his application.

Officers say the shop is located in an area with a high level of antisocial behaviour, and that extending the licence could encourage more drinking in the street.

What, so normal sensible drinkers can't nip out for a bottle of wine after 8pm because of a few idiots. Also, what time are Tesco allowed to serve to?

Buy your drink earlier or walk 100m down the street to Premier as they can sell until 11pm!

Also, the Best One is only near anti-social behaviour thanks to the moron family from West Quay Cabs who started a riot in the Dorchester, and subsequently had a mass brawl in Clovelly Road earlier this year - which somehow has still gone unreported by the DE but the trial is scheduled for September so I guess we'll have more on that then.
