Aberfan 'was like a scene from hell' - John Humphrys

BBC Today presenter John Humphrys was the first reporter to arrive on the scene following the Aberfan disaster and described it as a "scene from hell".

He said nothing in his 57-year career "has ever compared to the tragedy of Aberfan".

He was interviewed by pupils from Merthyr Tydfil's Cyfarthfa High School as part of the BBC News School Report project.
