Statistics ranking Nottingham as the 8th most dangerous place to drink in the UK has caused a stir and divided opinion amongst residents.

Cities up and down the country have been placed according to alcohol-related hospital admissions.

Nottingham is famous for its night-life and boasts a student population in excess of 48,000 across two Universities.

Anthony Wilson, manager of Copper Café said: “We have doormen on duty Friday and Saturday from 7pm till close and constantly monitor the situation to ensure there isn’t any trouble when people are enjoying a drink.”
