Pakistan cricketers' trial shown secretly recorded video

The jury in the corruption trial of two Pakistan cricketers has been shown secretly recorded footage of an agent discussing match fixing.

Mazher Majeed was filmed by an undercover News of the World reporter, saying match fixing had been happening for years, and naming players.

Mr Majeed, from Croydon, south London, is accused of conspiring with former Pakistan captain Salman Butt and fast bowler Mohammad Asif to fix parts of the Lord's Test between England and Pakistan last August.

Mr Butt and Mr Asif deny the charges.

James Pearce reports.
