A group of MPs have called for a 20% tax on sugary foods & drinks

A group of MPs have called for a 20% tax on sugary foods and drinks - as well as restrictions on TV adverts for unhealthy food until after the 9pm watershed. The report comes as a number of charities and medical experts have argued the measure is needed to tackle the obesity crisis. Carmel McConnell - the founder of the charity Magic Breakfast - which provides free meals for school children, joined Anthony Baxter to talk about the findings.
