Crossing Rayners Lane to enter the station the other day, I was approached by a man who asked me where the off-licence was.

The fact of the matter is that every shop in this locality that sells food, also sells floor-to-ceiling alcohol.

It can also be obtained 24 hours a day from garages.

How are all these licences being granted?

I’m sure lower alcohol consumption would mean less loutish behaviour and fewer costs cleaning up the damage.
