Up Close: Last Orders
Last Orders explores the devastating impact alcohol has on society and individuals.
Around £1billion is spent on health care related to alcohol every year. Police reckon around 30% of all victim-based crime is related to drinking - with many incidents involving violent crimes such as assaults and robberies.
And over 350 deaths last year in NI were caused by alcohol. However, experts believe deaths indirectly related to drinking - such as cancers and road deaths for example - are much higher.
