Booze Ban On Nottingham to Boston Train

East Midland Trains 

As a result of a joint initiative between East Midlands Trains and the British Transport Police, passengers on  the 8:51pm train which runs on a Saturday night between Nottingham and Boston will no longer be able to consume alchohol.

The train in question, which travels through Radcliffe in Nottingham, Bingham, Aslockton, Bottesford, Grantham, Sleaford and Heckington, has been dubbed "the chav express" by Twitter user, Sarah Jane Roberts.

East Midlands Trains say they are working closely with the British Transport Police to clamp down on anti-social behaviour. 

The ban comes into place on Saturday 16th July 2016 and will be enforced by police and Travel Safe Officers both on the train and at stations along the route.

Most train users have welcomed the decision and have asked EMT to impose similar bans across other routes.
