Quotes

"There have been lots and lots of cases involving disabled people who have been terribly abused, terribly injured, murdered" he told the BBC
"This week we will be running extra operations to promote public safety and to reduce crime associated with alcohol.”"
"We welcome people to our towns and cities for a night out but make sure it has a happy ending by drinking responsibly and staying safe."
"It is only a minority who don’t know how to behave after a few drinks, the majority of people in the West Mercia area can have a good time without wanting to cause harm to others. The people who are regularly causing trouble know who they are and there is help available if they feel they can’t change their drinking habits on their own."
