Interesting Fact - Flip Flops, Wrist Bands and Space Blankets

What do flip flops, wrist bands and space blankets have in common? They are all on offer to drunks around the UK.

(In Torquay, Devon, drunk women are handed flip-flops to wear, prompted by fears that by wearing stilettos or similar footwear whilst drunk they could tumble over and hurt themselves.

Space blankets are handed out in Gloucester to help prevent hypothermia (alcohol can lower the body temperature).

In Cardiff, Wales, young people who drink too much are given a lift home and given a yellow wristband asking: "How did you get home last night?" Ingeniously the wrist bands will also have a bar code which they will be able to scan to read about their night's revels.

Only in the UK.)
