Royal controversy after Princes' wildlife plea

Prince William has gone hunting deer and wild boar in Spain - just a day before making a public plea to end the illegal wildlife trade.

In a video message, the Duke of Cambridge and his father, Prince Charles, called on people to act now to save endangered animals like rhinos, elephants and tigers.

There is no suggestion the hunt in Spain was in any way illegal.

Nicholas Witchell reports.
