Pub staff will be told to stop using phrases such as 'Same again?' and 'Is that a double?' in a bid to cut binge drinking.

The guidance features in updated training guides produced by the alcohol industry for people working in the hospitality sector.

It encourages barmen to avoid any language that makes people feel pressured to drink and warns against disparaging those who choose low- or no-alcohol options.

The free online course also gives advice on how to deal with difficult situations, such as handling customers who are intoxicated or who appear to be underage.

It has been produced by the International Alliance for Responsible Drinking, a not-for-profit group dedicated to reducing harmful drinking.
