'Risky drinkers' who regularly consume more than the safe limits without binge drinking or getting drunk are unknowingly increasing their chances of developing cancer, liver disease and mental health issues, according to a report. More than a quarter of men (26%) are enjoying one too many - compared to only 18% of women, the study found. The pattern is increasing with age, with nearly one in three men over 45 (31%) regularly drinking more than they should. By contrast, the highest number of female risky drinkers are aged 16-24 (22%). Risky drinking is higher among professionals and those with the largest household incomes. See PA story HEALTH Alcohol. Photo credit should read: Johnny Green/PA Wire

An award-winning pub which is popular with Dearne real ale fans is hosting a beer festival.

The Old no. 7 pub in Barnsley town centre is expected to be packed for the event, held between Friday, April 18, and Monday, April 21.

Visitors can expect a wide range of ales and ciders for the fun weekend which will showcase some of the region’s top micro-breweries.

The pub only re-opened two years ago after a period of closure and was described last year as the “jewel in the crown of Barnsley’s real ale watering holes” by members of the Campaign for Real Ale (CAMRA).

In 2013 it was a double award winner, having been named both Yorkshire CAMRA Pub of the Year and Barnsley CAMRA Pub of the Year.
