The man inside China's lonely 'bachelor village'

Xiong Jigen, 43, is one of many men inside China's remote "bachelor village", where bad roads and few women make it hard to find a wife.

He lives in Laoya village in a very rural part of Anhui province of eastern China.

He shared his story with the BBC's Robin Brant.
