Man United stock flotation kicks off

Manchester United are hoping to raise £150m when their shares are floated on the New York Stock Exchange.

The club is controlled by the Glazer family, who borrowed large sums of money to pay for it in 2005. Half of the proceeds from the share sale will go towards paying off the debt.

The BBC's Michelle Fleurry reports.
