Alcohol-induced violence in public and at home is common, but courts have traditionally been reluctant to impose harsh penalties on suspects who claimed they were under the influence.

A poll this year found that alcohol was a factor in almost a third of the 3m serious crimes ‚Äď including murder, robbery and rape ‚Äď recorded over the past five years. Drunkenness was cited in 76% of public order offences and 44% of cases of domestic violence.
