Everybody likes a drink at New Year, afterall it's the perfect time to unwind and let go of the previous year. More and more people, however, are becoming victims of rape, theft or serious injury when drinking.
You must take extra care if you're venturing into your local club on New Year's Eve - unsightly people may lurk, looking for drunken victims.
