Nick Clegg calls for royal commission on drugs reform

Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg has called for a royal commission on drugs, five days after the prime minister and the home secretary rejected the idea.

On Monday an all-party committee of MPs recommended there should be a fundamental review of Britain's drugs laws, but David Cameron said that was unnecessary.

Mr Clegg told the BBC's Mark Easton that the worst thing people could do was "close their minds" to drug reforms.
