Events commemorate Sir Winston Churchill 50 years on

A simple but poignant ceremony has taken place to commemorate the 50th anniversary of Sir Winston Churchill's funeral.

Prime Minister David Cameron led tributes in the House of Commons and there was a commemoration of Churchill's journey by barge to Tower Bridge.

Before the journey began, a wreath was laid on the same barge which carried Churchill's coffin down the Thames 50 years ago.

Duncan Kennedy reports.
