"One teenager in seven has been in an emergency situation as a result of a friend drinking too much alcohol, according to a new study by the British Red Cross.
"In the past 12 months, more than one in 10 children aged between 11 and 16 have been left to cope with a drunken friend who was sick, injured or unconscious. Half of those have had to deal with someone who had passed out and a quarter have dealt with a friend who had been injured in a drunken fight.
"The survey, released to coincide with the launch of the Life. Live it. campaign to improve young people's life-saving skills, reveals that it is not just alcohol-related injuries that young people have to cope with."
