In Stockton-on-Tees, there is a pub rebranding itself as the Pound Pub, selling half pints for less than a pound, and a pint of beer for £1.50.  I know Stockton well from a personal perspective –  it’s where I was born, and I spent the first sixteen years of my life there.  I have relatives living there still, and I visit fairly regularly.  I also know Stockton well from a work perspective – the north east of England has some of the highest rates of alcohol problems in the UK, and it’s an area which comes up time and time again when I’m looking at facts and figures for A&E admissions, alcohol-related arrests, and liver disease.  The last thing it needs is a pub selling very cheap booze.  BBC News covers this story – a short video is here BBC News: Stockton’s Pound Pub
