Those responsible for alcohol-fuelled crimes could be forced to wear a bracelet which monitors their drinking, under a new pilot scheme.
Offenders convicted of an alcohol related offence in one of four London boroughs - Croydon, Lambeth, Southwark and Sutton - could be forced to wear the bracelet and face tougher punishments if they drink again.
Up to 150 people are expected to be made to wear the tags for four months to make sure they comply and the scheme will run over the course of a year.
The aim of the scheme is to reduce the costs of alcohol related crime.
According to the Home Office, around one million violent crimes each year are alcohol related.
