Prince Philip visits Cutty Sark restoration

16 March 2011 Last updated at 05:40 GMT

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.
