LATE-night drinking is causing "absolute bedlam", claims a town councillor.
Cllr Lindsay Davidson told Royston Town Council's general purposes and highways committee on Monday evening: "There is a severe problem with late-night drinking in the town centre.
"There are times when it is absolute bedlam. It is a real problem" she said.
The town council is to urge North Herts District Council to examine late-night pub opening hours during a comprehensive review of its licensing policy.
