Health warnings push for bottle necks

Retailers in West Lothian are being encouraged to place neck collars with alcohol safety messages around bottles.

The scheme is being organised by the region’s community safety unit and is supported by West Lothian council, the police, the local NHS, fire service and the Tobacco, Drug & Alcohol Partnership.
