British soldiers claim illness after nuclear blast tests

Almost 60 years after Britain's nuclear tests in the Pacific Ocean, the veterans who took part in them are still fighting for compensation.

The Ministry of Defence denies the claims.

Caroline Wyatt reports on the case, which is about to go before the Supreme Court.
