Amsterdam is targeting young British men in a “Stay Away” campaign aimed at keeping rowdy visitors from descending upon the city.

The online effort launched this week by Amsterdam city authorities, which initially targets British men between the ages of 18 and 35, will be broadened over the year to potential “nuisance visitors” from European Union countries, the municipality said in a statement.
