HMS Victory is 'slowly rotting away from the inside'

HMS Victory, Lord Nelson's flag ship at the Battle of Trafalgar in 1805, has been found to be in urgent need of repair due to extensive water damage.

She is one of the oldest warships in the world and visited by huge crowds of people every year in Portsmouth.

The BBC's Robert Hall took a tour of the ship and heard about the "multitude" of restoration problems that the conservation team faces.
