Hospitals count cost of Leicester City title win

Local hospitals "feeling the effects" from alcohol-related incidents

Hospitals in Leicester in the UK, say they're "feeling the effect" of the city's football team being awarded the Premier League trophy for the first time ever yesterday.

They've seen twice as many patients in their emergency departments as they would normally on a Saturday night and Sunday morning.

Most are being treated for minor injuries or alcohol related incidents, and staff are urging people to only attend hospital if it's a real emergency.

Tens of thousands of revellers were out on the city’s streets on Saturday night after the Claudio Ranieri's team was crowned Premier League champions after their 3-1 win against Everton at the King Power stadium.

On Sunday morning, the emergency services were clearly feeling the repercussions of the fans’ title-winning excess.
