Pakistan hit by measles epidemic

Parts of Pakistan are suffering from their worst outbreak of measles in living memory.

More than 14,000 cases have been recorded in the province of Punjab alone.

Health officials have admitted that the failure to vaccinate more than a small number of children is exacerbating the problem.

Richard Galpin reports from the city of Lahore - the worst hit area.
