Shocking new figures have emerged showing children as young as four have been treated in accident and emergency departments for the effects of alcohol.

Figures obtained by BBC Wales suggest at least 1,200 children attend casualty every year because of drink and drugs.

Children under 12 are among cases of alcohol and drug poisoning. Medical experts have expressed concerns that alcohol prices are too cheap.
