How does alcohol effect Plymouth?

Alcohol effects ALL of us. For many it's the modern day coping mechanism for modern day life and the way we deal with issues.

But that can have a huge impact on the emergency services, Accident & Emergency and hospitals dealing with domestic abuse, depression and assaults.

Over the past month Heart has been out with Plymouth police, ambulance crews and Street Pastors to see the impact drink is having on them and their work.

We've also talked to a specialist at Derriford hospital about the health implications and the fact that more young adults in their twenties are suffering from terminal liver disease.

There's plenty of advice below if you're worried about your alcohol intake and the impact in can have on your life.
