British couple describe Amazon rescue

A British couple are hoping to resume their travels after being rescued from the depths of the Amazon rainforest thanks to the help of coastguards in Falmouth.

Several hours after the couple's camper van fell into a ravine they managed to contact relatives at home and an international rescue operation was mounted.

Daniel Griffiths reports.
