Russia extends wheat export ban

Russia is one of world's biggest wheat exporters, and millions of people around the globe rely on it for staple products like bread.

But Russia has decided to extend its export ban, in force since last August, as it tries to come to terms with the impact of last summer's heatwave on its harvest.

Daniel Sandford reports from a grain processing plant in Podolsk, 30 kilometres outside Moscow.
