Drunken thug gets boozing life ban

A drunken thug has been banned from buying booze in his home city for life. Cleaner Richard Hurst, 21, started drinking when he was 12 and has been locked up seven times since he was 15.

Now he cannot buy alcohol at any pub, club, bar, off-licence, corner shop or even supermarkets in York. He can’t even walk down a store aisle containing alcohol.

The ban was handed out at York Crown Court as Hurst was jailed for four years for bursting into a house and beating a man in his own bed.
