Violence blamed on binge drinking

Police have introduced a range of measures to tackle binge-drinking
Nearly 70% of casualty admissions in a north Staffordshire town are alcohol-related, according to a police report.
Staffordshire Police say the number of people binge drinking in Newcastle-under-Lyme has increased, along with associated violence and drink-driving.
At weekends up to 20,000 people go out in the town, and some nights there may only be 10 police officers on duty.
