Ukraine protesters occupy Kiev square despite defeat

Hundreds of protesters have spent the night in Kiev's Independence Square, despite a failed attempt to force the resignation of the government.

The opposition tabled a motion of no-confidence in the country's parliament on Tuesday, which was later defeated.

Mass protests were sparked by the government's decision not to sign an association deal with the EU last week.

Daniel Sandford reports.
