Merseyside Police advice to New Years Eve Party Goers

MERSEYSIDE Police have issued advice to party goers to ensure they remain safe during the festive season.

Thousands of people are expected to make the most of the New Year period by celebrating in bars, pubs and clubs across Merseyside.

Superintendent Mark Morgan said:- "Everyone wants to have a good night with friends and family during the New year period but we also want to make sure that everyone gets home safely. We would advise friends to stay together as a group and watch out for each other; never leave drinks unattended; even if you only nip away to go to the toilet or for a cigarette break; don't accept drinks from strangers and watch the number of drinks you have so you stay in control. If people follow that advice then everyone can have a safe and happy New Year."

Here are some simple steps revellers can take to ensure they stay safe while enjoying their big night:-

► Stay with your friends; don't go to the toilet, the bar, the cash machine or for a cigarette on your own; stay in a group and look out for each other.

► Don't accept drinks from strangers; they could be extra strong or even spiked, and don't leave your drink unattended, even if it's a soft drink.

► Pace yourself; getting blind drunk puts you at risk; instead, have a soft drink in between an alcoholic 1 and remember, it is an offence for a bartender to serve you if you are intoxicated.

► Pre-book your cab and leave with your friends; use a well known firm and check the driver's ID and licence is visible inside the taxi. Also, make sure someone at home knows you are on your way and which firm is driving you.

► Trust your instincts; if it feels wrong it probably is so get out of the situation as quickly as possible and call:- 101010 if you feel at risk or threatened.
