Related to the UK’s culture of alcohol abuse: it is over 12 years ago that pubs were allowed to be open 24-hours a day in England and Wales.

The Independent:

The Government could move to limit the sale of alcohol at airports in an effort to curb increasing drunken behaviour on flights.

It is understood the Home Office is considering ending rules which currently allow bars and pubs at terminals to operate outside UK licensing laws.

The move could restrict the sale of alcohol to passengers just before they board flights, potentially putting an end to early-morning drinks for holidaymakers.
