Top 50 Towns with the Worse Drinking Habits


Blackpool has topped a poll as the town with the most dangerous drinking habits amongst its inhabitants, according to a new report.

The seaside resort had 1,230.5 per 100,000 people needing to go to hospital after a night out drinking; equating to just fewer than 5 people going to hospital per day due to alcohol consumption.

Stoke-on-Trent came second with 982.5 per 100,000 people needing hospital treatment for alcohol related incidents.

London only featured once on the list with Islington featuring in the top 50. Coming in at number 31 the London borough had 800.8 per 100,000 people needing to go to hospital for alcohol conditions.

Labour MP Liam Byrne said: "Booze abuse costs Britain a staggering £21 billion a year.” reported the Telegraph.

"These shocking figures expose just where our problem's biggest.

We've got to now make sure councils and health chiefs have proper plans in place to put treatment in reach of drinkers needing help” he said.
