An increasing number of US teenagers are drinking hand sanitiser and mouthwash because it contains alcohol, police in Albuquerque say.

Some youngsters are even distilling the products to get a stronger hit.

Medical experts are appealing to parents to keep sanitising products and mouthwash out of reach.

The BBC's Wendy Urquhart reports.
