Paris boutique displays giant chocolate tree sculpture

A French chocolatier has created a 5m (16ft) high sculpture of tree, complete with sprawling roots and its own resident monkeys - made entirely of chocolate.

Patrick Roger is well-known for his edible creations, but he says the work is incredibly delicate and whole sculptures can sometimes just crumble to pieces before they are seen by the public.

Rupert Waring reports.
