    More than a hundred people have died after drinking illegally brewed alcohol in India's West Bengal state.

    It is thought the liquor was laced with the highly toxic chemical methanol.

    Dozens of others were being treated in hospital. And four people were arrested in connection with making and distributing the liquid.
