Tour guides in Portugal show off austerity hit city

Three unemployed architects in Porto, the regional capital of Northern Portugal have set up an unusual walking tours agency.

Upset at the impact of austerity on their historic home city, they set up "The Worst Tours".

Instead of taking visitors to the famous wine lodges and historic tourist sites, they'll take you to all the worst places in town.

No less than 70, 000 buildings are now derelict in Porto and entire shopping centres have had to close.
