Nigerian entrepreneur turning old tyres into furniture

Used tyres found at the side of the road in Nigeria are being turned into furniture by a female entrepreneur.

Olabanke Banjo says she's helping the environment - and the pieces are proving so popular that she quit her job to make them full-time.

She told BBC Minute: "When women see what I do they are inspired to do something similar. If I don't take care of my environment, who will?"
