Super-strength drinks banned at 140 stores

A co-operative group has banned super-strength drinks from sale in all of its 140 stores in Norfolk, Suffolk and Essex.

The East of England Co-op group said it was withdrawing all cheap drink with an alcoholic content of 6.5% or more.

It follows a year-long trial in Ipswich where shops, including several major chains, stopped selling super-strength beers and ciders.

Suffolk Police said it had resulted in a reduction in anti-social behaviour and problems associated with on-street drinking.
