Doctors call for 20% sugary drink tax

The British Medical Association (BMA) has called for a 20% tax on sugary drinks to combat obesity.

It says a third of the UK population will be obese by 2030 unless something is done to change people's diets.

The BMA suggests the extra money raised should be used to subsidise fresh fruit and vegetables.

Hugh Pym reports.
