World Cup: Brazil's Arena Pantanal 'will miss deadline'

After a spate of building problems and public protests in Brazil, the governing body of world football, Fifa, repeatedly warned there would be "no compromise" over the delivery of stadiums for next year's World Cup.

Wyre Davies visited the site of the new Arena Pantanal in Cuiaba to see how much more needs to be done.
