A BOOZE ban zone could be doubled in size to get rid of street drunks and liquor louts if the idea gets public backing.
Town Hall chiefs at Hackney are considering extending Dalston’s fledgling no drinks’ boundary drawn up last year to tackle anti-social behaviour.

Cops have slapped145 penalty notices on yobs so far, since the zero tolerance’ enforcement began in January, 2007.
