US actress Lindsay Lohan begins 90 day jail term

Actress Lindsay Lohan has started a prison sentence for violating her probation relating to a 2007 drug case.

The 90-day term was ordered earlier this month after Lohan failed to attend court-ordered alcohol education classes.

The former child star had been on probation since August 2007 after pleading guilty to misdemeanour drug charges and no contest to three driving charges.

Peter Bowes reports from Los Angeles.
