Families place flags for Chile miners at 'Camp Hope'

Engineers in Chile have begun drilling a shaft to rescue 33 miners who have been trapped several hundred metres underground for nearly a month.

The drill will only bore down 20 metres per day and officials warn that it could be Christmas before the men emerge.

James Reynolds took a look around the mine site where relatives have erected flags for the miners.
