Exhibition of 1930s crime photos in New York

An exhibition of photos taken by one of the top crime photographers in New York in the 1930s and 1940s opens in the city on Friday.

Arthur Fellig, who was nicknamed Weegee, used police scanners to get to the scenes of crimes first.

His pictures of the scenes of murders and mob arrests have become iconic and are now being put on show at the International Centre of Photography in New York.

Wendy Urquhart reports.
