Don’t be a Christmas boozer loser warning

Drinkers in Leeds are being urged to examine how much booze they are knocking back over Christmas. Giant touch-screens have been erected at Leeds railway station to help people work out their alcohol consumption – and compare West Yorkshire’s drinking levels with the national average.

Screens have also been put up in London, Glasgow and Birmingham letting people input what they have drunk in the previous 24 hours.

The initiative by charity Drinkaware is part of efforts to temper Britain’s binge-drinking culture over the festive period.

Chris Sorek, Drinkaware chief executive, said: “For many people, December and the festive season is a time for getting together with loved ones and celebrating over a drink or two, or even more!

“It might feel like party time, but it’s still really important to keep track of how much you’re drinking – the long-term effects of drinking to excess can last for much longer than Christmas.”

Britain party-goers will drink more than 600 million units of alcohol over Christmas and new year – the equivalent of 265 million pints, 602 million shots of vodka or 286 million glasses of mulled wine.

The information gathered by the live screens, including in London’s Covent Garden, will be fed onto the charity’s website www.drinkaware.co.uk

Full results will be published early in the new year.

Meanwhile, the original ‘Stig’ has been back behind the wheel to launch a n anti-drink driving campaign.

Perry McCarthy, pictured, the British racing star behind the ‘Stig’ visor in BBC’s Top Gear, was in Yorkshire to promote Coca-Cola’s designated driver campaign.

The campaign rewards drivers who choose not to drink on a night out by giving them a second soft drink for free.

The campaign runs until January 2 and involves more than 8,000 bars and clubs nationwide.
