Deaths from alcohol-related disease among women in their 30s and 40s are rising, according to a new study.

Researchers looked at deaths in men and women of all ages in Glasgow, Liverpool and Manchester from 1980 to 2011.

They said the results for women born in the 1970s should be a warning signal about their drinking habits.
