Brighton and Hove Council has today announced more partnership work between anti-social behaviour officers, the police, and the NHS, to try and reduce the shocking number of alcohol-related hospital admissions of children and young people.
According to figures discussed at a series of recent Sussex Police Authority meetings, ten times as many Brighton and Hove children are hospitalised through drink than the national average.
Of course I hope this initiative makes a difference.
But it won't address the key problems: alcohol being made available at pocket-money prices, particularly in supermarkets, and a simple lack of things to do for teenagers and younger people.
If we're serious about reducing alcohol-related harm to children we need a change in the law - to ban supermarkets from selling alcohol for less than it costs them - and a massive injection of cash to provide better facilities for younger people.
