Almost three-quarters of under-16s reduced their alcohol intake after police caught them drinking in the street, a new study has suggested.
Researchers questioned 100 youngsters aged 12-16 after their contact with Lothian and Borders Police officers.
More than six in 10 (62%) of those surveyed said they had drunk alcohol since police caught them, but almost four in 10 (38%) said they had not.
In total, 74% said they were drinking less and had changed what they drank.
The survey assessed the impact of Operation Floorsweep, which aimed to target under-age drinking and associated anti-social behaviour.
Buckfast tonic wine was the most popular alcohol, drunk by 37%, while 31% drank both alcopops and spirits.
