HAMPSHIRE County Council is encouraging people to think about sensible drinking and how many units they are consuming each week as part of Alcohol Awareness Week.

Statistics show nearly a quarter of Hampshire residents drink above the safe recommended levels of 14 units of alcohol each week.

Councillor Patricia Stallard, the council’s executive member for health and public health, said: ‘With so many different drinks, bottles and glass sizes, it’s easy to get confused about how much is too much.’
