Fewer adults dying from conditions directly caused by alcohol

Fewer adults are dying from conditions directly caused by alcohol, but deaths from related conditions, such as cancer, have risen slightly.

This is according to new figures from Public Health England, which show fewer adults are dying from alcohol-specific conditions, such as alcoholic liver disease and alcohol poisonings.

Nationally, alcohol-specific deaths fell by 3% to 17,755 deaths.
