Q: I am coming to watch the Women's game at Lord's tomorrow and I would like to bring a bottle of wine with me to drink during the day. I'm buying a ticket on hte gate so I can't check the ticket for restrictions. Can you let me know if this is OK? It was last time I went to Lord's to watch a Test match but things change so quickly I thought I'd better check! Debbie Beesley

A: Hi. Here's what it says on MCC website under ground regulations - Small quantities of alcohol may be brought into the Ground, under the supervision of MCC who reserve the right to confiscate any quantity of alcohol from any spectator, and return it to such spectator at the end of the day’s play. The MCC Committee has set a limit of two pints of beer or one 75cl bottle of wine per spectator. Amounts of alcohol in excess of the limit will be confiscated. Under no circumstances will any spectator be re-admitted to the Ground at any time during the day if he or she is in possession of any alcohol. See for more info
