Spain train crash families want independent inquiry

The relatives of July's deadly rail crash in Spain have called for an independent inquiry.

They say that economic interests and the future of the country's high speed rail are being given priority over the 79 people who died and the dozens who were injured.

The accident, which happened on 24 July near the Galician city of Santiago de Compostela, is one of the worst rail disasters in Spanish history.

Tom Burridge reports.
