New Home Office figures have revealed that the number of shops with a licence to sell alcohol at any time of the night or day jumped another 5% to 2,100 this year. This is 400 more than three years ago, and is the highest number of shops with these freedoms since records began. The number of pubs and bars with 24 hour licences is soaring too.

So what is this costing us?
