UK worst in Europe for anti-social behaviour

The UK has the worst problem with anti-social behaviour in Europe, according to a survey.

http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/uk_news/4751315.stm

People in six nations were asked where there were big or moderate problems.

76% said the UK had a big or moderate problem.

44% said the Netherlands had a big or moderate problem.

Most people said parents were responsible for making sure their children were not anti-social.

The lack of positive role models was blamed for much anti-social behaviour.

68% of people in the UK saw alcohol as a factor.

"The survey ... blames drunkenness and a breakdown of discipline in homes and schools for levels of anti-social behaviour greater than anything seen elsewhere in the EU."
