Prince Philip visits Cutty Sark restoration


Four years ago a devastating fire almost ruined one of London's most famous landmarks - the Cutty Sark.

The ship survived that blaze down to a stroke of good fortune - large parts of the last tea clipper had already been removed for restoration.

Now Prince Philip - who helped save the ship for the nation back in the 1950s - has been to see the restoration progress for himself.

Robert Hall reports.
