Pub association responds to minimum alcohol prices

Proposals have been set out to try to cut binge drinking in England and Wales by setting a minimum price for alcohol.

The plans would mean that a can of lager would cost at least 38p, and a bottle of vodka £10.70.

The chief executive of the British Beer and Pub Association, Brigid Simmonds, spoke to the BBC about her response to the plans.
