Singapore's fading joss stick trade

Chinese New Year is a busy time for joss stick makers, but one family business in Singapore is facing an uncertain future.

Many countries across Asia are celebrating the Chinese New Year this weekend.

The festival is a busy time for those in the business of making joss sticks - or cinnamon incense.

However, demand for hand-crafted joss sticks has been declining due to cheaper rival products and changing tastes.

This has caused problems for an 80 year-old family business in Singapore, which Ali Moore went to visit.
