'Drunk tanks' planned for Teesside drinkers

As centres to help people recover after binge drinking are being planned for Teesside, young people in the area talk to BBC Tees about their drinking habits, which illustrates the culture the authorities are dealing with.

Middlesbrough could see its first alcohol recovery centre open in November with one also being proposed for Redcar at a later date.

Organisers said the centre would relieve the pressure on hospitals.
