  • Ed Balls today urged parents to talk to their children about the risks associated with drinking alcohol ahead of New Year’s Eve as research shows it is often near the bottom of their list of worries about their child’s safety.

    New research published today shows that parents worry more about their children having unwanted pregnancies, road traffic accidents and taking drugs than they do about their child drinking alcohol.

  • Top level health advice over youth drinking is "complete rubbish".

    That's the view of a Wigan councillor who believes health advice just released is over the top.
