As the festive season gets into full swing, the usual warnings about alcohol consumption are published to remind drinkers to act responsibly.

From groups of workers causing chaos on Christmas nights out, to boozed-up teens puking in town centres, this is the busiest time of year for the police and ambulance services. The recommended alcohol intake is 14 units per week for women, and 20 units for men, but during this time of year, these guidelines are increasingly ignored. Here at Catchup News we wouldn't want to condone any of this sort of behaviour, but we recommend you stock up on paracetamol to take care of those morning hangovers. And if that fails, then send your partner or flatmate out to get you a bacon butty and a strong cup of coffee!
