Nottingham ranks 8th in a list of Britain’s 50 most dangerous drinking locations. The list was ranked by alcohol-related hospital admissions.
Nottingham ranked higher than East Midlands rivals Derby and large northern cities Liverpool and Manchester. Stoke-on-Trent, Norwich and Blackpool all ranked as more dangerous.
Nottingham is also in the top 10 areas with the highest rate of smokers.

These figures were released by Birmingham MP and the former chief secretary to the Treasury, Liam Byrne.
Rob Symes, a nightclub promoter in Nottingham, believes that Nottingham’s problems are made worse because it has a large student population.
He said: “The reason Nottingham seems worse then some places is because it has two student populations as oppose to some cities which only have one.
“The police can be called quite a lot. You can pretty much guarantee an ambulance one a night.
