Brits abroad: Who's to blame for bad holiday behaviour?

The One Show Team | 15:21 UK time, Friday, 21 August 2009

On tonight's show, ex-copper Rav Wilding visited the Greek party resort of Malia to investigate if the headlines of badly behaved Brits abroad are true or not.

Earlier this month the island hit the headlines when a young British man ended up with second-degree burns after an incident in a nightclub with a female bar staff member. She is accused of pouring a glass of Sambuca on his groin and setting it alight after he allegedly pulled his trousers down in front of her.

This is just one of many incidents reported in the press of raucous behaviour of Brits abroad.  But we want to know who you think is to blame for bad holiday behaviour?

Does the responsibility lie squarely on punters or should the tour operators take a more active role in promoting responsible drinking? Should tourists take more care with cultural sensitivities when abroad?
