Just days before the 25th anniversary of the world's worst nuclear disaster at Chernobyl in 1986, several thousand people who took part in the clean-up operation have held a demonstration in the Ukrainian capital, Kiev.

They were protesting against sharp cuts to their benefits and pensions, as Will Grant reports.
