Telegraph uses FoI to reveal growing booze crime trend

The Daily Telegraph has used the Freedom of Information Act to find out the number of alcohol-related crimes committed in each of the 43 police force regions in England and Wales.

Its investigation – which comes three days before a Government report on the effects of relaxed licensing is published – revealed a 1,500 per cent increase in alcohol-fuelled crimes in Humberside, and 300 per cent increases in Derbyshire and Durham.
