Orange fever grips Netherlands

They have been preparing for months - Tuesday is the big day for the Dutch Royal family and the people of the Netherlands.

Queen Beatrix will abdicate and hand over the sceptre of power to her eldest son, Willem Alexander.

He will be the first king to reign there in more than 100 years. Unsurprisingly orange fever has gripped the country.

Komla Dumor is there to witness a change at the top.
