You might have already planned your Christmas Party in Milton Keynes - but have you worked out how you're going to get home?

Thames Valley Police say they are not a taxi service and it's not their responsibility to get you back safely.

They're advising you to check public transport timetables well in advance, or get a family member to pick you up to avoid any potential dangers.

If you opt to get a taxi home, licensed taxi ranks are located at:

:: MK station
:: Jurys Inn, The Hub
:: Xscape

Thames Valley Police say if you choose to be a designated driver for your night out, make sure you stick to non-alcoholic drinks all night.

The consequences of drink driving are serious. It’s not worth the risk.

Chief Inspector John Batty, Deputy Commander for Milton Keynes local policing area, said:

“Too often on weekends during December, our officers are caught up in looking after those who find themselves unable to get home because they spent their taxi money, missed public transport or decided to drink after driving into the town centre.

Whilst our priority is to keep people safe in Milton Keynes, many of these situations are avoidable by just planning your route home in advance.”
