I mentioned this on Twitter earlier today, but felt it needed more coverage.
The Sun has an article in which is says that young people can get drunk for half he price of a chocolate bar.
According to the Press Association, the report comes from a group known as "Core Cities". Unfortunately, the report itself doesn't appear to be on their website.*
Leaving this aside, the Sun's article - and, to be fair, those in other newspapers - is misleading for one simple reason: it completely ignores the fact that there is an age limit on buying alcohol.
When it comes to children, you can't just compare chocolate and alcohol on a simple unit price as it does - one is freely available for children to buy, one isn't.
If the Sun is going to complain about underage drinking, it needs to have a go at how they get access to booze.
* If anyone does have a copy of the report, I'd be grateful if you could leave a comment.
