Drinkers who offend to wear 'alcohol bracelet'

Authorities are expecting some 150 offenders to be tagged as part of the scheme.

Offenders who are convicted of a booze-fuelled crime may be forced to wear an alcohol bracelet to monitor their drinking, under a new pilot scheme.

Four London boroughs - Croydon, Lambeth, Southwark and Sutton - will trial the scheme, where offenders are forced to wear the alcohol monitor for four months at a time.

The bracelet measures the amount of alcohol in their sweat and they may face further penalties if they are found drinking.
