Stag and hen dos could be confined to certain parts of York city centre, if an MP’s plan to crackdown on rowdy nights out goes ahead.
Labour MP Rachel Maskell, who has served as York Central’s MP since 2015, accused stag and hens of causing ‘devastation’ to the historic city, claiming revellers leave the centre smelling of urine.
To tackle the issue, she has unleashed a blueprint plan that would see those on stags and hen confined to pre-planned zones, with the aim of keeping them ‘hidden from residents’.
This, she said, would help ‘return’ the city to locals’, alleging that families felt that there were ‘no safe spaces’ left in York.

Earlier this year, fuming York residents hit out over the raucous antisocial stag and hen dos they believed were taking over the city.
Neighbours living on Bishopthorpe Road in the city wrote to Ms Maskell after two properties on their road had been converted to ‘party houses’.
