Increase in children with alcoholic parents

There's been a big rise in the number of Lincolnshire children getting help - because a relative or loved one is abusing alcohol.

Lincoln based support project Young Oasis has helped 17 young people so far this year.

That's up from only 4 this time last year.

Some are as young as 6 years old.

It comes as the government announces 6 million pounds of funding to help children with alcoholic parents.
