Transgender toilet use: US schools 'must respect gender ID'

Schools in the US have been told by the federal government they must allow transgender students to use the toilet that matches their chosen gender identity.

It is the latest move in a battle over gay, lesbian and transgender rights.

BBC North America correspondent Aleem Maqbool reports.
