Figures uncovered by Labour MP Liam Byrne have revealed the 50 most dangerous drinking areas in England – and it’s not good news for the North-East.

Newcastle fairs a lot better, with a position of 22.
In the top 50 there are plenty of other North East areas including South Tyneside (10th), North Tyneside (13th), Hartlepool (24th), Redcar & Cleveland (32nd) and Country Durham (35th).
