Phil Campbell: Tornado town helped in recovery by Phil Campbells

On 27 April the small town of Phil Campbell, Alabama, was nearly completely destroyed by a deadly force five tornado.

Residents of the community were due to celebrate their 100th anniversary this weekend. Instead they decided to cancel in favour of working on their battered homes.

But a phone call from a man with a very familiar name changed their minds.

Andy Gallacher reports form the town.
