Prime Minister attacks drinking scandal

Prime Minister David Cameron has pledged to tackle the “scandal of our society” – a reference to the UK’s binge drinking culture.

Abusive drinking is said to cost the National Health Service (NHS) upwards of £2.7 billion a year and Cameron has announced “innovative solutions” to the problem.

The solutions include, more police on patrol in A&E wards, “booze buses” – vehicles with paramedics to help drunken party-goers – and US-style “drunk tanks”.

Drunk tanks – cells where drunks can sleep off their over-indulgence – negate the need to formally arrest and charge someone or take them to hospital and keeps them off the streets and out of vehicles.
