Burma Spitfire hunters discover crate

British experts looking for a cache of World War II Spitfire planes believed to be buried in Burma say they have discovered a crate.

The team has lowered a camera into the crate in the Kachin state capital Myitkyina, but says muddy water has stopped them identifying the contents.

It is thought that more than 120 unused Spitfires could be buried at sites across Burma.

Robert Hall reports.
