Benidorm is set to follow in the footsteps of Magaluf and Ibiza and crack the whip on drunken hooligans with a plan to banish them entirely.

The blacklist would include the names, nationalities and passport numbers of anyone who has been arrested for offensive behaviour or brawling.

The crackdown comes after more and more hoteliers in the region report drunken hoodlums who are offending other tourists, as well as staff.

There have also been widespread reports of hotel room vandalism.

The ban is also popular with British ex-pats.

Local entertainer Gary Beddow Brown agrees with the ban.

He told The Daily Star: “Some tourists leave their brains at home and think they can get away with anything while abroad, usually something they wouldn’t consider doing at home.

“I’m all for a blacklist — people need to be held accountable.

“Why should local businesses be out of pocket for damage caused by people with no regard for others?”

The Spanish seaside resort has attracted crowds of thrill-seeking tourists for years, but locals have long complained about the effects of drunken tourists.

Tourists from the UK make up nearly half of the figures in the Spanish resort.

Happy hours and 2-4-1 drinking deals are already banned in the region – with fines up to £2,500.

A ban of mobility scooters, segways and hoverboards has also been implemented after a spate of incidents involving pedestrian paths.

Anyone caught flouting these rules will have to pay up to £430 in fines.

Earlier today, a group of boozy Brits on their way to Benidorm made headlines after downing a beer horn during a Ryanair flight.
