It turns out the kids might not be partying like it's 1999 anymore.

Research by YouGov this week compared younger generations in the UK favourably with counterparts in Germany and the US for binge drinking.

In all of these countries, hard drinking is decreasing in young people.

In 2014, a report by the World Health Organisation found that the UK was the 13th highest country of 196 for heavy drinking as the below chart by Statista shows.

It was also found that 28 per cent of Britons were found to have had a heavy drinking session in the past month, compared to the global average of 16 per cent.
