  Female binge-drinking 07 October 2004  
Image: drinking
Hospital consultants in the North of England have noticed increasing numbers of young women are seeking treatment after being injured in drunken brawls

They claim fighting between women is resulting in horrific injuries such as broken cheek bones, fractured hands, or facial wounds inflicted by being hit with glasses or bottles. Is this another consequence of binge-drinking or are women becoming more violent?

Professor Anne Campbell an expert in female aggression from the Psychology Department, at the University of Durham and Don MacKechnie, the Chairman of the British Medical Association’s accident and emergency department and a consultant at Rochdale Royal Infirmary will be joining Jenni on the programme.
