IMAGES of splattered beer bottle tops have appeared on pavements in a new war on liquor louts on the streets in London's East End.
They have been stencilled (pictured) by Tower Hamlets council along with the message: "Don't blow your top-help stamp out drink-related violence."
The first images have appeared in Brick Lane exactly a week after police brought in a 'booze ban' zone three evenings a week, Thursday to Saturday, where they have the power to boot yobs out of the area.
"Our 'don't blow your top' message grabs people's attention," said Tower Hamlets cabinet member Abdal Ullah.

"It may just make them stop and think before taking that extra drink that could tip them over the edge."
The message has appeared in Spitalfields along Brick Lane and Commercial Street and in Bow along Roman Road.
