Chief Constable Mike Cunningham said: “We want people to enjoy themselves but we also want them to stay safe and be responsible.

“If you’re heading out to start your festive celebrations please make sure you do so with consideration for others – or you could end up with more than just a hangover.

“Officers are working around the clock together with local establishments to keep the town centres a safe and pleasurable place to be. Their high-visibility patrols will offer reassurance and they will deal with any trouble makers

“Alcohol-related violence is completely unacceptable at any time of the year and Christmas is no exception.

“We want our communities to have a happy, and safe, Christmas and New Year, and we will do our utmost to make sure town centres remain an enjoyable place to be.”
