There are calls for drinkers to be 'enticed' back into pubs and bars.

It is as a report from Plymouth University suggests a crackdown on cheap booze is not working.

The research says it could be causing alcohol related trouble, because more people are drinking at home to save money.

Over six months 600 people who had been arrested were surveyed. Two thirds of 17 - 30 year olds had been drinking at home. The majority said they were drunk before they got into town.

Dr Adrian Barton did the research. He said, "When people are at home they drink in totally uncontrolled situations. There's very little price limit, there's no standard measures, there's no boby there to say look your behaving a bit out of order. If you get people back into the bpubs at least you can begin to control their drinking behaviour.

"Our research found it is at the point where they go out, and they've probably had more than enought to drink at that point, it's at the point when they go out that that creates flashpoints and tensions with door staff, police, bar staff, taxi drivers and that kind of stuff."
