New anti-drink measures introduced in Portsmouth

A scheme to ban the sale of super-strength alcohol has been launched in Portsmouth.

Off-licences are being asked by the city council and Hampshire Police to stop selling some beers, lagers or cider with an alcohol volume of more than 6.5%.

The scheme, which aims to reduce drink-related crime, has been backed by about 25 stores in the city.

The council estimates alcohol misuse costs the city more than £70m a year.
