BBC travels into Kobane: 'Destruction is everywhere'

The Syrian city of Kobane has seen some of the fiercest fighting between Islamic State militants and Kurdish fighters.

With the help of allied airstrikes, it was finally retaken last week after four months of brutal battles that saw the city all but destroyed.

Thousands of residents fled into neighbouring Turkey.

The BBC's Quentin Sommerville reports from inside Kobane.
