Queen to return to Aberfan on Wales Diamond Jubilee tour

The Queen and Prince Philip will continue their Diamond Jubilee tour, spending a second day in Wales.

The tour will include a return to Aberfan, the coalmining village the couple previously visited after it was devastated by a terrible accident in 1966.

144 people, most of them children, were killed when a coal waste tip slid down a mountain, engulfing a school and surrounding houses.

Jeremy Cooke reports.
