English Courts Bans Woman From Drinking at Bars

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

Laura Hall has been banned from all pubs and nightclubs as well as all off-licenses for the next two years in a bid to curb her loutish behavior.

Police pleaded for the ban after losing patience with the 20-year-old's persistent drunken escapades in the Bromsgrove area of Worcestershire.

Magistrates in Kidderminster agreed and slapped her with the first nationwide drinking banning order (DBO) under powers introduced in September.

Hall, formerly from the Stoke Heath area of Bromsgrove, had already been barred from local pubs for her boozy antics.

But now she is not allowed to enter any licensed premises - and is also banned from opening any alcohol in public.
