Diageo growth due to global markets

Diageo, the world's biggest drinks maker, saw pre-tax profits increase by 12% to £2.24bn in the year to the end of June.

The firm, whose brands include Guinness, Smirnoff and Johnnie Walker, said developing markets had offset weakness in western Europe and the US.

Paul Walsh, chief executive of Diageo, told the BBC about their growth in China and the US.
