Film found in Devon church 'identifies Nazi war criminal'

A reel of film discovered in a cupboard at a Baptist church in Devon is said to prove the guilt of a suspected Nazi war criminal.

The film shows an SS task force at a camp in Ukraine overseeing building projects which cost thousands of lives.

One British historian is adamant that the film identifies the man in charge as Walter Gieseke, an SS officer, who always denied committing any atrocities.

Jon Kay reports.
