Malia mayor wants strict drinking zones for UK tourists

HOLIDAY DEATH: Tyrell Matthews-Burton was fatally stabbed in Malia last week

DRUNK BRITISH tourists will be held in tightly controlled drinking zones to prohibit violence in Crete after a British teenager was stabbed to death on the island last week.

Tyrell Matthews-Burton, 19, from Leyton, east London, died after being stabbed during a mass bar brawl between dozens of British tourists in the resort town of Malia.

Myles Litchmore-Dunbar, from Catford, South London, has been charged with his murder.

Following the incident, the town’s mayor Zacharis Doxastakis has vowed to clamp down on tourists' “wretched antics”.

“They can't just come to our country and run riot,” he told the Sunday Express.

“Just because our country is in crisis we don't need to accept such behaviour.”

Doxastakis said the implementation of special zones is being considered, and they would be located around “clubs that will host young Britons where they can do everything they want to but in an area that is closely monitored.”

Malia is a very popular holiday destination with young people from the UK due to its burgeoning nightlife.

However, there have been instances where gang allegiances from their home area have been exported to the town, which have led to violent clashes.
