Northern Ireland plans for lower drink-drive limit

Northern Ireland's environment minister has outlined his proposals to change the drink-driving laws.

Alex Attwood says he wants to cut the limit from its current level of 80mg/100ml to 50mg/100ml, in line with many countries in Europe.

There would be another, lower, limit of 20mg/100ml for young drivers and people who earn their living from driving.

Mark Simpson reports.
