London, Feb 20 (ANI): Girls as young as 10 have named vodka-laced alcopop WKD their favourite drink in a UK poll.

Stunned health workers had expected pupils to talk about cola and juices.

The survey was conducted at three primary schools was for the NHS South East Essex health trust.

Ray Hatter, a substance misuse specialist for the trust, said the findings were “disturbing”.

“This problem is not just at the schools we visited - it is more widespread,” he added. (ANI)
