The man in charge of Cornwall's police says drink drive limit should be cut - possibly to zero.

Tony Hogg wants a minimum price for booze too.

He is leading a group of other Police and Crime Commissioners trying to cut the £11 billion that alcohol-fuelled trouble costs the country.

Mr Hogg said: “The public will know that I have made tackling alcohol related crime and misuse a clear priority in Devon and Cornwall.
 
“We have already made some good progress, but there is a clear need to bring PCC’s together to send out a clear and powerful united message to the national decision makers.”  
 
“As the public’s elected representatives we have a strong collective voice, and we are well placed to make a real difference.”
 
“For example, we will lobby for a reduction in the drink drive limit, and the introduction of minimum unit pricing. We will be working closely with police chiefs and officers.”
