Charity recycles UK pacemakers for developing world

A British charity wants to start sending pacemakers removed from dead people in the UK to developing countries for re-use.
Around 40,000 people have one of the devices implanted every year in Britain, but many people in poorer countries cannot afford them and die as a result.
Pace4Life is now collecting the used devices from funeral directors around the UK - where many are removed.
Health reporter Tulip Mazumdar met the charity's founder Balasundaram Lavan to find out more.
