Birmingham students recreate WW1 trenches in paper

Students at Birmingham City University have used brown paper to recreate a scene from the World War One trenches.

They had a budget of several hundred pounds to build the lifesize sculpture, which depicts the first night of the Battle of the Somme.

It will be on show to the public for the next two weeks.

BBC Midlands Today's Bob Hockenhull went to speak to the students who built it.
