Miner's rescue in New Zealand yet to start

The rescue bid at a New Zealand mine where a blast trapped 29 men, including two Britons, will not begin until Sunday because of safety fears.

There has been no contact with any of the miners since an explosion on Friday at the Pike River mine on the country's South Island.

Jonathan Beale reports.
