YOUNG people are turning their backs on alcohol according to a new study.

Health data from the last decade found almost a third of 16 to 24-year-olds in 2015 said they didn't drink, compared with around one in five in 2005.

Binge drinking rates also decreased - from 27 per cent in 2005 to 18 per cent in 2015, based on Health Survey for England figures.

Almost 10,000 people were questioned in the survey, published by the medical journal BMC Public Health.
