Police Federation calls for lower drink-drive limit

The drink-drive limit in England and Wales should be cut to match that in Scotland, the Police Federation says.

It wants the limit reduced from 80 to 50 milligrams of alcohol per 100 millilitres of blood.

The federation also suggests more needs to be done to discourage women from drink driving.

Scotland reduced the limit at the end of 2014 and Northern Ireland is considering a similar plan.

Robert Hall reports.
