Met accused of 'campaign' against shaken baby witnesses

Three senior pathologists, who have called into question the science behind Shaken Baby Syndrome, are claiming they have been the victims of a sustained smear campaign.

The pathologists are accusing the Metropolitan Police and others of trying to undermine their professional credibility.

The BBC's Andrew Hosken reports.
