The world cup 2010 starts tomorrow in South Africa. Sadly during the last world cup domestic violence reports increased by 30% and other alcohol related violence and issues were also a problem.

The Safer Birmingham partnership launched their new campaign on the 7th June. The campaign is aimed at encouraging individuals to drink sensibly and stay safe during the World Cup season, whether watching England matches at home with friends or in local pubs/bars.
