Re-education offered to young drinkers24th November 2008
Young people who binge drink in Hertfordshire have been given the opportunity to reduce police fines if they attend alcohol re-education courses.
Police usually fine binge drinkers £80, but young people will be told they can reduce this amount by half if they go on a course. Ian McNichol, chief executive of the charity Druglink, which organises the course, said: "You'll find quite often a number of young people are totally unaware of the fact that it [alcohol] causes harm."
