Jungle Outlaws: The Chainsaw Trail

Panorama investigates illegal logging in the rainforest and the timber trail from Africa to West Europe. It's a lucrative trade from the stump to the checkout - that's leading to the destruction of new swathes of vital rainforest and begins with the loggers who risk their lives cutting down hundred-year-old trees for just £2.50 a day.

Reporter Raphael Rowe spent six months tracking logs from Congo's jungle, and discovers that new timber regulations are failing to stop illegally-felled wood getting into European stores and on to the consumer.
