Calories in common alcoholic drinks

Calls for clear and concise calorie labelling on alcoholic drinks have revealed the overwhelming number of people who do not know how much they are really drinking.

Calories in alcohol:

  • Large white wine - 200 calories
  • One bottle of alcopop - 150 - 170 calories
  • A pint of beer - 180 calories
  • Double gin and tonic - 150 calories

The Royal Society for Public Health found drinkers consumed an average 400 less calories on a visit to a pub when the calorie content of drinks were visible.

Calorie labelling on alcohol 'could cut obesity'

Clear calorie labelling on alcoholic drinks could help reduce the UK's growing obesity problem, health experts have claimed.

Some 80% of adults were not aware of just how many calories were in a glass of wine, and 60% did not know many were in a pint of beer, the Royal Society for Public Health (RSPH).

The health experts warned one glass of wine had the same amount of calories in it as a glass of wine. Now the RSPH wants drinks manufacturers to put calorie labels on products like wine, beer, alcopops and sprits.

Abuse 'normal' in parts of Greater Manchester

The sexual exploitation of children has become "normal" in some parts of Greater Manchester, according to a damning report. The inquiry blamed "sexting", music videos and social media for fuelling sexualisation of under-16s.

Labour MP Ann Coffey lead the inquiry to see what had changed in Rochdale after nine Asian men were jailed in 2012 for grooming vulnerable girls with alcohol, drugs and gifts before forcing them to have sex with multiple men.

Ms Coffey, who represents neighbouring Stockport, said mass sexual exploitation of youngsters in Greater Manchester was "a real and ongoing problem".
