One Punch Awareness Campaign

West Yorkshire Police in England started a campaign which has been rolled out all over the UK and Northern Ireland.

It is aimed predominantly at young males aged 18-25 and highlights the risks of getting involved in an argument or fight which could ultimately lead to a serious injury or even death. One punch can leave lives destroyed and leave families devastated.

Since 2004, 20 people have died from one punch in the UK and Ireland, many more have been seriously injured. One mistake could lead to a murder or manslaughter charge and a criminal record.

In the majority of cases alcohol was the fuel so this Christmas enjoy your drop of drink but drink sensibly and stay safe.
