Raphael's tapestries in London ahead of Pope's visit

Priceless tapestries, designed by the Renaissance artist Raphael, have arrived at the Victoria and Albert Museum ahead of Pope Benedict XVI's state visit to the UK.

The tapestries, which have graced the Sistine Chapel for nearly 500 years, have been reunited with Raphael's original designs - owned by the Queen.

Will Gompertz reports.
