Cricketer Basil D'Oliveira remembered

A memorial service for the Worcestershire and England cricketer Basil D'Oliveira has been held at Worcester Cathedral.

The all-rounder was banned from playing for his adopted country in South Africa in 1968 because he was not white.

He played county cricket for Worcestershire between 1964 and 1980, and represented England in 44 Tests.

The BBC's Ian Winter reports.
