Birmingham Museum's Buddha statue blessed after 150 years

The 150th anniversary of a statue of Buddha has been celebrated at Birmingham Museum with a blessing by members of the faith.

It was given to the city after being transported from India by a former Lord Mayor.

The statue dates back to the 6th or 7th Centuries.
