Campaigners call for compulsory drug and alcohol education

Every year thousands of children get involved in drugs, often with tragic consequences.

Some parents, who have lost their children that way, are leading a new campaign to make drug and alcohol education compulsory as part of the national curriculum, after the government dropped plans to do so.

Mitch Winehouse, father of singer Amy who died in 2011, is campaigning along with Vicky Unwin, whose daughter Louise died after taking Ketamine.
