Queen praises Brisbane's 'courage' in dealing with floods

In Australia, tens of thousands of people have turned out to see the Queen in the city of Brisbane, where she praised the "resilience and courage" of those who had dealt with devastating floods earlier this year.

She spent the day meeting people who had lost their homes when the Brisbane river burst its banks, and seeing how the city has been rebuilding itself.

Nicholas Witchell reports from Brisbane.
