Final preparations for Pope Benedict XVI's UK visit

Tens of thousands of people are expected to line the streets of Edinburgh later when Pope Benedict XVI arrives for the start of his UK visit.

He will meet the Queen at Holyroodhouse and parade through the city before attending an open-air Mass in Glasgow.

The Pope moves on to London on Thursday night, where he will spend two days meeting religious and political leaders, Catholic groups and holding prayers and Mass.

Ben Geoghegan reports.
