Dingo baby case re-opens in court in Australia

A court in Australia has been hearing about the role of a dingo in the disappearance of a baby girl 30 years ago.

Lindy Chamberlain was convicted of the murder of her daughter in 1982, after the infant vanished from a camp site.

She has always maintained that a dingo took her child and her conviction was later overturned.

However Mrs Chamberlain and her former husband Michael are asking the court in Darwin to officially declare that dingoes were to blame for what happened. The BBC's Duncan Kennedy reports.
