YOU TELL US; After the excesses of Christmas Day, many Tyneside people may be feeling a little tender today. RACHEL WEARMOUTH asks what do you think are the best cures for a hangover?
A SPLITTING headache, dizziness and a queasy stomach - all the signs you had a few too many festive drinks yesterday.
Eastern Europeans swear tripe soup is the perfect hangover cure whereas the Scots mix a strange brew nicknamed the Highland Fling. It's a pint of buttermilk thickened with cornflour and seasoned with salt and pepper.
A bacon sandwich and a couple of painkillers might seem like a better option to most of you.

Kat Lowther, 22, a customer consultant from Kingston Park in Newcastle, says you drink water before going to sleep.
She said: "Before I go to bed I have two paracetamols, half a bar of chocolate and a pint of water."

"I have one before I go out and one when I get up in the morning."
Nina McKay, 29, a customer consultant from Heaton in Newcastle, said: "I think what makes you bad makes you better.
"But if you are working the next day then I would say get a bottle of Lucozade Original."
