British teens among worst for drink

27th March 2009

Research carried out by the University of West of England has found that British teenagers are the third worst binge drinkers in Europe and their alcohol abuse is causing serious illnesses.

It questioned 15 and 16-year-olds and more than half admitted regularly drinking to excess. Out of 35 nations, only Denmark and the Isle of Man had a worse result. The UK sample included 1,004 boys and 1,175 girls and showed that girls are more likely to get drunk than boys in this country.
