'Tell us more about alcohol'

5th May 2006 at 01:00
A quarter of 11 to 16-year-olds said they later regretted something they did as a result of drinking, according to a study. The average age for a first drink is 11, and more than 80 per cent of the 572 interviewed said they had had at least one alcoholic drink. Almost two-thirds said they had their first drink with their parents. The study, by the Drinkaware Trust, which is funded by the drinks industry, found that pupils wanted more education about the dangers of alcohol.
