South African miners return to work after wage deal

Thousands of miners at South Africa's biggest platinum mining firms have returned to work, a day after unions signed a wage deal to end a five-month strike.

It has been the biggest dispute in the mining industry since the 2012 Marikana massacre. On that occasion 34 protesting miners taking part in an illegal wage protest were gunned down by police.

The BBC's Nomsa Maseko was at the mine, as employees returned to work.
