Mayor urges Serbian singles to have children

Single men and women from a town in central Serbia have been given a free holiday to the coast to encourage them to fall in love and have children.

The 300 men and women, all aged 38 or above, have been brought together by their town's mayor in an effort to stop the falling birthrate.

Mark Lowen reports from Belgrade.
