David Livingstone diary decoded

Fresh light has been shed on the Scottish explorer and anti-slavery missionary David Livingstone.

A diary which had faded so much it was illegible has been decoded to reveal his first hand account of the horrors of a slave massacre.

It is thought Livingstone's followers may have been involved.

The manuscript has gone on display at the National Library of Scotland in Edinburgh.
