The UK is facing a hearing loss timebomb, according to RNID research which reveals that 90 per cent of young people experience the signs of hearing damage after a night out, yet do nothing to prevent it.

The report published today shows that 70 per cent of clubbers, 68 per cent of gig-goers and 44 per cent of people who go to bars experience the symptoms of hearing damage after their night out, such as dullness of hearing or tinnitus – ringing in the ears.
The lack of any guidance on loud music means this generation of music lovers could be facing a hearing loss timebomb.
