Bristol Somalis angry over ban of drug khat

There has been an angry response from members of Bristol's Somali community to the news that the drug khat is to be banned.

The Home Secretary has announced it will be prohibited, in line with most other European countries.

Some regard it as a blight on their community, but for others it is a centuries-old part of Somali culture.

Paul Barltrop reports.
