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.

The district council review will be looking at the impact current licencing laws are having on the area and seeing whether any changes need to be made.
