Sobriety tags to be rolled out across Lincolnshire after success in Grimsby pilot

New technology used to cut the level of alcohol abuse in Grimsby has been so successful it's being rolled out across Lincolnshire.

Sobriety tags work by measuring the alcohol content in the sweat of offenders, and will soon be in use across further afield after a successful pilot.

They were first launched last year in a project part-funded by Humberside and Lincolnshire's Police and Crime Commissioners.
