Dangerous drinking levels among youngsters

2nd July 2009

A survey by the Trading Standards Institute has found that one in four young drinkers consume dangerous quantities of alcohol every week.

However, the poll of 13,000 young people also revealed that the number of underage drinkers is falling, from 50% in 2005 to 38% this year. But of these, a quarter were drinking more than 20 units a week - equivalent to about 10 pints of beer - and one in 20 were drinking alone. Alcopops and cider were the most popular drinks.
