But instead they found many kids sup bottles of the brightly-coloured WKD, which has more booze than a shot of whisky, reports the Sun.

The survey was conducted at three primary schools was for the NHS South East Essex health trust.

Ray Hatter, a substance misuse specialist for the trust, said the findings were "disturbing".

"This problem is not just at the schools we visited - it is more widespread," he added.
