Magna Carta arrives in Bury St Edmunds

A copy of the Magna Carta has arrived in Bury St Edmunds, where it will be on display in May.

The charter was sealed in Surrey in 1215, but barons are said to have met in Suffolk a year earlier to discuss how they could get King John to put his name to it.

An original copy of the charter will go on display at St Edmundsbury Cathedral.

BBC Look East reporter Kevin Burch watched it arrive.
