Attempts to control Sunderbans oil spill in Bangladesh

Efforts are under way to clean up an oil slick threatening part of the world's largest mangrove forest in Bangladesh.

Conservation chief Pradeep Vyas said "precautions" were being taken in West Bengal's coastal region.

Oil leaked into waterways in the Sundarbans area after a collision involving a tanker three days ago.

Bill Hayton reports.
