A study of heavy drinkers in Scotland who consume up to 800 units of alcohol a week found they were buying cheaper drink than most other people.
One of the report's authors said it was "likely" the introduction of a minimum price for alcohol - as proposed by the Scottish Government - would reduce the amount of drink consumed by these problem drinkers and would also lead to a fall in alcohol-related illnesses.

The authors told a frankly amazed JT: "Who would have thought that price would've been the main consideration  for people buying 800 units  a week? Astonishing."
The report's authors now intend two other areas of pressing epistemological concern: the extent of form variation of water in crystalline form and the intellectual debate over  the extent of  The Deity's agency in the promulgation of the species Malus domestica. The wee green wans.
