You won’t be able to find any beer on Burger King’s menu at two of London’s busiest train stations following strong opposition from police, the Evening Standard reported Sunday.

The burger chain wanted to serve beer from 10 a.m. until 11 p.m. Monday to Saturday, and 10 a.m. until 10.30 p.m. on Sundays, according to Metro UK.

Police opposed the idea, citing beer sales could put people at risk and increase crime and violence around the train stations.

Last year, Burger King was the first fast-food chain in the UK to win an alcohol license to sell one beer per-adult before 9 p.m., at one of the chain’s locations in Suffolk, England.
