This weekend we can all look forward to an extended break to celebrate the Queen's Diamond Jubilee. This will give us plenty of time to unwind, relax, do some of those household chores - and take part in the many celebratory barbeques and street parties.
Street parties and barbecues will be great fun but, inevitably, drinking is likely to be involved and this can lead to trips, falls and other accidents. Alcohol impairs your judgement, and also acts as a diuretic so can leave you dehydrated, causing nausea and muscle aches.
Alcohol is the biggest single cause of accidents in the home(1) with 2.7 million home accidents requiring hospital treatment each year(2). When you have been drinking, not only is the likelihood of you having an accident increased, but the seriousness of your injury is likely to be greater than when sober.
Follow this advice, and help to avoid injury this weekend (and reduce the hangover!):
