Paris restricts car use after pollution hits high

French authorities are imposing driving restrictions on motorists in Paris efforts to tackle dangerous levels of air pollution.

From tomorrow, drivers will only be able to use their cars every second day.

It is only the second time since 1997 that the restriction has been enforced.

Hugh Schofield reports from Paris.
