Chasing the Greek treasure thieves

The economic meltdown has created a boom in antiquity thefts as people try to make money from the treasures of ancient Greece. However Detective Gergios Tsoukalis of the Greek police is hard on their trail in Athens.

BBC Fast Track's Theopi Skarlatos joins him on a chase of some suspects and discovers that illegal trading in antiquities has risen by 30% since 2009.

You can see Theopi's report in full plus other clips at the BBC's Fast Track website.
