A school governor has called for a ban on parents drinking alcohol while picking up their children.
Arthur Mitchell, chairman of the board of governors at Doncaster Road primary school in Barnsley, South Yorkshire, said a street drinking ban had been proposed after police received reports that parents had been seen drinking at the school's gates.
If the ban does come into force, anyone caught drinking in the area will be handed a £500 fine. Mitchell said: "There have been reports of frequent drinking by parents outside the school as they are disposing of and collecting their children. It's not nice for the kids to come out and see that."News by SoulRiser on October 5, 2009 @ 11:20 AM
