The UK is the seventh-highest consumer of sugary soft drinks in Europe, according to new research by gym and fitness club chain PureGym.

On average, Brits consume 322 cans of sugary drinks a year, the equivalent of 106.1L, or 2L a week.

Topping the list was Germany with an average of 423 cans a year, more than 2.5L per person a year, followed by Denmark (378 cans) and the Czech Republic (375 cans).

The only country in the top five to have introduced a sugar tax has been Belgium. Despite topping the list, Germany has no plans to implement a sugar tax of its own.
