The Crime Survey for England and Wales from 2013/14 shows that in around half (53%, 704,000 offences) of all violent incidents the victim believed the perpetrator to be under the influence of alcohol. While the volume of incidents has fallen, the proportion of violent incidents that were ‘alcohol-related’ has remained relatively steady over the last ten years.
