The nation is celebrating Bonfire night with lots of local organised events and house parties.
Bonfire celebrations are great fun but, inevitably, drinking is likely to be involved and this can lead to trips, falls and other accidents.
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.
If you are standing around and watching a bonfire and fireworks display remember to keep steady on your feet by wearing sensible shoes.
Make sure you drink plenty of water – before, after and whilst consuming alcohol and try not to drink on an empty stomach.
You don’t have to drink to excess to enjoy yourself. For more information on units and responsible drinking visit www.drinkaware.co.uk
If you injure yourself, make sure that you get it looked out sooner rather than later.
