World War One 'Dazzle Ship' recreated in Liverpool

During World War One, some 2,000 warships were painted in reds, oranges and greens to confuse German U-boats.

They were known as "dazzle ships", and now the technique's been recreated as part of the Liverpool Biennial of contemporary art.

Will Gompertz reports.
