'Happy birthday' sung to Aung San Suu Kyi on UK visit

The Burmese opposition leader, Aung San Suu Kyi, is visiting the UK for the first time since she left her family home in Oxford 24 years ago.

On what is her 67th birthday, she talked to students at the London School of Economics.

She also met BBC disc jockey Dave Lee Travis, whose World Service radio programme kept her spirits up during more than two decades of house arrest.

Caroline Hawley reports.
