This Christmas drinker was certainly well-oiled after he was spotted asleep - in the branches of a restaurant's olive tree.

The unknown male was literally spotted 'out of his tree' outside the eaterie in Plymouth, Devon.

Passer-by Sam Whitfield was out for the night with friends when he saw the reveller passed out drunk, cradled in the tree's branches.

Sam said: 'We found him sleeping in a tree outside the entrance of Bella Italia.'

Earlier this month it was revealed by the Policy exchange that in December Britons drink 41% more alcohol than in any other month, but that we also have the lowest number of drink-driving deaths over compared to that of any other G7 country.

Staggeringly the average Briton will imbibe 1.02 litres of pure alcohol over the festive period, with only the Germans beating us in the drink stakes by sinking 1.2 litres of the strong stuff.

However, it appears that there is a distinctive lack of festive good will in the UK, as we see the biggest rise in burglaries than any other G7 country, with a increase in the crime of 1.8%.
