A social media drive to warn Staffordshire teenagers about the dangers of binge drinking has been launched.

The campaign comes after a survey of more than 5,000 teenagers in the region revealed almost three-quarters had tried alcohol.

Dan Kendrick, 24, recently underwent a detox course at the BAC O'Connor Centre in Burton-on-Trent after he began drinking aged 16.
