Community TV station beamed riot footage globally

Pictures of the riots from a small community television station, based in Birmingham, have been beamed around the world.

SANGAT TV, which was unheard of by most people just a few days ago, has taken viewers right to the heart of the disorder with its own unique style of reporting and plea for calm.

Police and community leaders are working closely to restore order to the second city.

Joanne Writtle reports.
