An alcohol ban will come into force at Norwich Station following the introduction of a drink-free zone in the city centre.
The new rules will come into effect on Friday, as part of Norfolk Police’s city centre alcohol-free zone.
It means no alcohol can be drunk in the station’s concourse, platform and car park. Rule-breakers could face fines of up to £500 or arrest if they do not hand over any alcohol to police.
Alcohol can be drunk in the station’s pub.
James Reeve, Greater Anglia area customer service manager, said: “We’d like to remind customers that the station, including the car park, is an alcohol-free zone and we are politely asking people not to drink alcohol while at the station.
