Off-licence crawls: The new way to socialise
Alcohol consumption has risen by 22% due to lockdown restrictions, according to Drinkaware.
As social points like bars and restaurants remain shut, people have been turning to alcohol as something to do and a way to cope with stress.
‘Off-licence crawls’ have become popular on the social media platform, TikTok. The trend involves walking to multiple shops to buy alcohol, and then drinking on the go.
At the time of filming, lockdown rules allowed the public to go on a walk with one person outside of their household. Young people have used ‘off-licence crawls’ as a new way to socialise whilst indoor contact remains off-limits.
