Boy born in jail frees mother Vijay Kumari after 19 years

A 50-year-old Indian woman has been released from prison, 19 years after she was granted bail.

Vijay Kumari was unable to post the necessary amount of about $180 (£120) to secure her release - so she stayed in prison until the son, who she gave birth to while in jail, got her out.

Sanjoy Majumder reports from Kanpur.
