Demonstrations are taking place in Kiev as attempts are made to clear Independence Square of protesters.

The protesters have set fire to heaps of tyres and riot police are in the square, which is known as the 'Maidan' and was the focal point of the movement which ousted Russian-backed president Viktor Yanukovich last year.

David Stern reports.
