Replica French warship recreates historic voyage to US

A replica of an 18th century French warship has set sail from France for the United States.

The original Hermione played a crucial role in cementing French support for the rebels in the American war of independence.

The replica frigate will sail west across the Atlantic - and is expected to reach Yorktown in June.

Tim Allman reports.
