Binge drinking costs taxpayer £4.9 billion a year

Binge drinking costs £4.9 billion a year to the UK taxpayer, or almost £80 per person, the University of Bath's Institute for Policy Research has revealed.

Findings show:

  • Binge drinking increases the average number of daily injury-related A&E admissions by 8%
  • The daily average of road accidents by 17%
  • The average number of alcohol-related arrests by 45%
  • The number of police officers in duty by around 30%

The research argues that policies in place to regulate alcohol sales and consumption are inadequate and that a possible solution would be increasing the average retail price of alcohol by at least 10 pence per unit.
