Young adults who have just one drink a day could raise their risk of a stroke by a fifth, experts have warned.

People in their 20s and 30s who drink moderate to heavy amounts of alcohol may be more likely to suffer a stroke than those who drink low or no amounts, according to new research.

They were then asked to rate the drinks from 1 to 7
