ULTIMATE PINT OF BEER
I read some astounding figures on UK alcohol-related crime in the Financial Times of 9th June:
- over £8 billion a year total cost
- £2.7 billion a year cost to National Health Service
- 973,000 incidents of alcohol-related violence a year
- 87,000 involving glasses
- 5,500 ‘glassings’, when an offender smashes a pint glass into a victim’s face.
