Aung San Suu Kyi's 'prison gates' up for sale

One of the world's most famous gates is being sold on Friday.

In Myanmar, which is also known as Burma, the metal doors that kept opposition leader Aung San Suu Kyi under house arrest for the best part of two decades are being auctioned off to the highest bidder.

Ms Suu Kyi is not directly involved in the sale but the proceeds will go towards supporting her political party the National League for Democracy.

Jonah Fisher went to see the gate in Yangon.
