Pompeii's House of Gladiators collapses

A house in the ancient Roman city of Pompeii has collapsed, raising concerns about Italy's state support for its archaeological heritage.

The House of the Gladiators, which was not thought to be at risk of collapse, was found in ruins when curators came to open the site early on Saturday.

Russell Trott reports.
