Arctic Convoy: Medal ceremony in Wester Ross

More than 30 veterans of World War II's Russian Arctic Convoys have been presented with medals at a ceremony in Wester Ross.

The men received the Arctic Star, an honour awarded for the first time this year in recognition of service on the dangerous maritime missions.

The sailors worked to keep supplies flowing to the Soviet Union.

The ceremony was held near Loch Ewe, where many of the convoys of ships carrying food and weapons sailed from.

Robert Hall reports from Loch Ewe.
