India's forgotten Coronation Park

Britain used to be the imperial master in India, but times have changed dramatically.

Now India is the fastest growing large economy in the world - and Britain is not even among the country's top 10 trading partners.

Ahead of Indian prime minister Narendra Modi's visit to the UK, BBC News visited a memorial park in Delhi that houses statues of British emperors and viceroys.

Indian political commentator Swapan Dasgupta explained what this site symbolises for the India-UK relationship.
