Working to prevent problem of drugs
WITHOUT a doubt, drugs are the scourge of Gloucester's nightclubs and bars.
That is why the managers of these clubs and bars are encouraging the police to carry out random drug tests at their venues.
That is what we call being responsible.
The managers all want a safe environment for their customers and it is desperately important that Gloucester's nighttime economy benefits from drug-free venues.

That is, of course, very difficult to manage.
But what is encouraging is that the managers of these venues are now openly working with the police as our reporter, Nick Webster discovered.
The evening economy in Gloucester has a long way to go before it really caters for a cross section of the public.
But owners and landlords are making a good start.
IT'S good news that a top name in outdoor and winter sports clothing has decided to come to The Quays.
Snow+Rock sells top brands and it is good to see those vacant shops filling up.
The Quays is a slow burn but it is getting there. Enormous investment is going into attracting new retailers.
In this tough economic climate Gloucester should be pleased to have such a great partner as Peel Holdings to drive the local economy forward by investing in the city.
MS sufferer Emily Barrett says she was told by Gloucester City Council that she would be "better off parking on double yellow lines" with her disabled blue badge than in resident bays.
She ended up with a fine after going to Gloucestershire Royal Hospital for an appointment but found no disabled bays free. Hopefully, some common sense can prevail here with the city council.
