[A chief constable has called for special "drunk tanks" to look after intoxicated people instead of the NHS or police]((http://www.itv.com/news/update/2013-09-18/put-very-intoxicated-in-drunk-tanks-says-police-chief/).
We asked our Facebook followers whether they agreed with the new "drunk tank" proposals, here is a selection of their comments.

Other countries have drunk tanks/hostels. If you are in such a state you cannot look after yourself and there are no friends to take you home, you are put there and have to pay in the morning. Think it's a great idea.

It won't stop alcoholism, they won't be able to afford to pay - then they'll be taken to court and huge amounts of taxpayers money will be wasted to try and get the money back. Small repayments will be agreed - meanwhile the following weekend the drunk goes out again and gets into the same state - pointless exercise.

Great idea, I have been working as club security for over 10 years and I know about other countries doing this. 1, It would free up police. 2, People will learn from being sent to the drunk tank and being fined. It's ok to have a good night out but not to the point of how some people get.
