Footballers head to North Korea


A group of players and coaches from Middlesbrough Ladies football team is leaving for a four-day visit to North Korea.

It is the latest event in a special relationship which stretches back to the 1966 World Cup when North Korea played at Middlesbrough's Ayresome Park, famously beating Italy 1-0.

Former voice of Ayresome Park Bernard Gent and Middlesbrough player Rachael Hine have been speaking about the visit as BBC Look North's Katie Gornall reports.
