    Section 27 in effect means no drinking at football matches?

    Section 27 was meant to remove individuals from an area where an alcohol related crime or disorder is or is likely to be committed.

    How do you interpret that? The landlord had no complaints, so it's not likely a crime was committed?

    Future alcholic crimes. ffs. :rolleyes:

    A few class actions against police forces should establish that this power should not be utilised where there is no evidence that violence is likely to result. It is clear that section 27 wasn't intended for use in such circumstances, otherwise the police could close any pub they wanted to close on a whim.

    Stopping drunken twats bottling each other at closing time is one thing - stopping football fans who aren't causing any trouble from having a drink is quite another and is out of order. :mad:
