All trucks belonging to a Russian aid convoy that travelled to rebel-held eastern Ukraine on Friday have returned to Russia.

More than 200 trucks drove to Luhansk on Friday without permission from the Ukrainian government, after Russia said it was tired of waiting for clearance.

It comes as German Chancellor Angela Merkel arrived in Kiev for talks with Ukraine's president, Petro Poroshenko.

Mike Wooldridge reports.
