Cambridge sends in peacekeepers over 'punt wars'

In a bid to end increasing ‘punt wars’ in Cambridge, the Cam Conservators have said that from April 2012 only licensed punt operators can operate, from six official stations, and a river bailiff has been appointed to police the operations. The trade is estimated to be worth up to £6million a year. An estimated 40 ‘punt touts’ were operating illegally in the city up to last year, and fights had been known to break out.  

The six official stations are at Granta Mill Pond, Trinity College, Jesus Green, Quayside, and on the east and west banks at Mill Pit.
