WWI burial site at Nunhead to be restored after neglect

A World War I burial site in south-east London, where 266 soldiers were laid to rest, is being restored after decades of neglect.

The restoration project at Nunhead Cemetery is the largest of its kind in the UK and it is all thanks to the efforts of one man, Eddie Barclay.

BBC London's Kurt Barling talks to Eddie, Steve Nellany of the Commonwealth War Graves Commission, Keith Langford, grandson of Henry Langford of the Rifle Brigade, and Raymond Sampson, grandson of Charles Sampson of the West Kent Regiment.
