Shame of binge drink Britons abroad as number arrested on holiday soars 15%
A shocking Foreign Office report reveals a huge rise in the number of arrests of Britons overseas. There were 4.603 arrests of Britons at 15 holiday destinations last year. Many arrests are due to behaviour caused by excessive drinking.
Drunken and loutish holidaymakers have sent Britain's reputation abroad plunging to new depths.
Arrests of UK citizens in Spain - by far the biggest problem country - have gone up by a third. In France, they have rocketed by 42 per cent in one year.
The report, British Behaviour Abroad, highlights the perils of excessive drinking by women on holiday that could leave them more vulnerable to rape.
It urges women to cover up, wear 'appropriate dress' and behave in line with local customs noting: 'Alcohol is the most frequently used drug in drug-assisted rape.'
