"Neknominate" drinking game could cause "catastrophic danger" say Cumbria Police

POLICE are warning revellers in Cumbria about the potential "catastrophic dangers" of the 'Neknominate' drinking craze.

The drinking trend, which originated in Australia, has spread across the UK via social media.

Neknominate involves a person downing a pint of alcohol in the most creative way they can, then uploading it to a Facebook page and nominating a friend to do so within 24 hours.

Police have received numerous complaints from members of the public expressing concerns that the craze is becoming increasingly dangerous.

Chief Superintendent Steve Johnson said: “Whilst some may see it as a bit of fun, the consequences could be catastrophic. We are noticing that as the chain goes on as does the intensity of the situations people are putting themselves in.

"I’d ask that people act with responsibility and that they don’t put themselves in danger. I’d also act that if you receive a nomination please do not feel influenced to partake in any activity through peer pressure.”

Have your say

A game for morons from a country of the same.
