Slight increase in alcohol deaths27th January 2012
New figures from the Office for National Statistics have shown that alcohol-related deaths in the UK have increased slightly between 2009 and 2010.
The number of deaths linked to drinking has gone from 8,664 to 8,790 - a rise of 126 – with the increase due to more deaths in men. However, the long term trends in men have been relatively stable, with a small rise in 2010 cancelling out a small fall in 2009. The number of women dying as a result of alcohol has fallen slightly between 2009 and 2010.
