Court rules in favour of minimum unit price for alcohol

The Court of Session in Edinburgh has ruled in favour of the Scottish government's plans to introduce a minimum unit price for alcohol.

Three judges rejected a challenge from the Scotch Whisky Association.

Holyrood had approved the policy, four years ago, after ministers argued it would save lives and reduce crime.

BBC Scotland's Steven Godden has been hearing the views of both sides.
