David Potts, Private Eye 'Socialite of the Year' and councillor who laid bare his alcoholism, dies aged 30

"In an interview he said he could sometimes consume up to 70 units of alcohol a day, downing a bottle of vodka before going to work as a financial investor.
"He would sip from a hip flask during the morning, then have up to eight gin and tonics at lunchtime.
"Mr Potts blamed only himself, saying in February: "I don't feel sorry for myself, I've brought this on myself. I am paying now for my addiction to alcohol.
""I'd warn other young people to take a lesson from my book. Alcoholism is ugly and pernicious.""
