But The Sun wants to stop this... um... declining problem, before it's too late. And what do they illustrate this story with? Go on, guess. Yep, a pint of real ale being handed over at that well-known underage drinkers' hangout, the Great British Beer Festival...

Binge drinking horror - they're at it again
The Sun is concerned that Britain's teenagers are drinking themselves to death. There are some disturbing statistics out there about underage drinkers, though the bit everyone seems not to be able to see is the FACT that the numbers of underage people who are drinking is FALLING. (Thanks to BLTP for pointing out the BBC's hilariously bad, unprofessional scaremongering on this dreadful news, complete with picture of youngster grimly drinking themselves to death on beer).
